Project Description

Customer:

German catering Start-Up delivering organic food for schools and kindergartens

Challenge:

Setting up a start-up company out of the investment fund’s portfolio in the area of ‘Organic-Food’

Key Questions:

  • Which suppliers are following an organic approach along their whole value chain?
  • What are the company’s financial needs concerning upcoming investments?
  • What HR organization is best suitable?
  • What is the pricing approach that should be followed?

Our Input:

  • We evaluated the value chains of the start-ups suppliers
  • We calculated a detailed business case as a basis proposal for a long-term financial plan
  • We proposed an adapted HR-Concept with high self-responsibility for employees to enhance the employees’ cooperation, identification and social awareness.

Results:

Position was quit, when the investor pushed the company too much into fixed costs and scaled it faster in productions capabilities than sales could deliver customers.
