Working with NW Food Solutions has been incredible for my team and I. Obviously it’s great that we’ve tackled huge supply chain initiatives with Teri & Alicia, but their partnership with our company has been much more than just that. They have become critical voices in our leadership strategy meetings, enlightened coaches for our floor team, and lifelong mentors for our managers and myself.

Tyler Malek / Co-Founder / Salt and Straw

I had the pleasure of working with Alicia and Teri with a joint client. We were able to quickly connect and collaborate, allowing the client a more efficient and cost effective solution from their consultants. Alicia and Teri have built a successful company centered around integrating themselves quickly and building great relationships with their clients. The result is happy people, valuable and sustainable results, and an amazing reputation in their industry.

Cindy Fetty / Director of Operations/Senior Consultant / HR Annie Consulting

We were growing rapidly and needed interim management support to assist our team. NW Food Solutions worked with us to grow our current team from the shop floor, they helped us mentor a new operations manager and they helped us transition into a more structured operation. NWFS helped us set up systems to support the growth and added cadence to the operation focused on helping the company reach its production goals and succeed.

Arturo Litwak / CFO / House Spirits Distillery

We partner with NW Food Solutions to help us deliver operational excellence services to our food and beverage clients. Teri and Alicia are extremely effective at providing custom solutions to companies with a focus on achieving key organizational metrics. They provide us at OMEP a perfect complement to our service offerings.

Chris Scherer / President / Oregon Manufacturing Extension Partnership

The team at NW Food Solutions provided tremendous support and advice in the design and construction of Clif Bar and Company’s Innovation Center, an eighteen thousand square foot baking facility. NW Food Solutions put in place world class employee and food safety programs providing us a high level of confidence in the safety of the work environment and the food that we produce.

Tom Jones / Senior Vice President R&D / Clif Bar and Company

Teri and Alicia are true experts in the practice of lean manufacturing. Together we streamlined our processes, redesigned layout and flow of our plant and saw our output capacity grow by 35% in just a few weeks. Importantly, they empowered our team with practical skills and methods to continue improving and developing a “lean culture” within our organization for years to come.

Jan and Lacey / Owners and Founders / Happy Campers Gluten Free

NWFS has been a great help in our journey to build an improvement focused culture at our company. They have helped introduce principles, methodologies and ideas to move us in a forward direction.

Nikos Ridge / CEO / Ninkasi Brewing Company

NW Food Solutions helped us tremendously with understanding and implementing FSVP legislation and writing our International Recall Plan. Teri & Alicia follow up regularly on current affairs on Quality and Food Safety and they are very pleasant to work with.
