Trained and Certified Consultants

Trained and Certified Consultants

Our consultants use the tools, resources, rigorous training and mentorship provided in the FFI consultant training program to give sophisticated financial technical assistance to food, beverage and value-added agriculture businesses.

Food Finance Institute Trained Consultants

Level 1 Training Participants

Level 1 Training Participants were trained in current market trends in the sector, the basics of conducting market research, various business models in food (and their accompanying metrics/capital structure) as well as in-depth case studies of business model optimization.

Level 2 Training Participants

Level 2 Training Participants were trained in the process of raising appropriate debt, strategic investments, and equity investments in food, beverage and value-added farm businesses. This included a discussion of the legal, financial and governance prerequisites to and implications of raising equity.

Our Premier Consultants have successfully completed a project, like a fundraising request for a food, beverage or value-added agriculture business with Tera Johnson, FFI director and founder of teraswhey®, to earn this certification.
