Details - Information last confirmed on April 16, 2021
Our firm presents a mature and highly profitable business that has built up a strong and authoritative reputation within the agricultural industry, becoming an expert at providing consulting services in highly specialized areas such as pest management control, food safety auditing, and training.
Having grown an extensive and vibrant network consisting of consultants, trade groups, manufacturing entities, universities, and growers, the company has flourished by expanding 11% since 2015. With the market for food safety consulting projected to grow rapidly in the coming years, this brand is well-established, and their customer base is growing as fast as their crops.
This is a highly unique and very profitable consulting firm within the agriculture industry that has brought in revenue close to or exceeding $1 million for the past three years, and their services are specialized enough that competition is minimal. Their evergreen customer base gives them an average contract size that ranges from $3,000 to $10,000, while their client retention rate is above 90%.
With strong community roots, this company can be grown exponentially with the introduction of a digital marketing plan. The company has relied on word of mouth and could increase sales significantly by investing more into an SEO program, the use of social media and PPC ad creation to generate heightened web traffic. That would enable the company to expand its auditing projects to new clients.
The brand also has a major untapped market to focus on: the fast-growing hemp/cannabis industries. Marijuana is now legal for medical use in 36 states and for recreational use in 17 other states. As hemp remains a highly profitable industry, and a thoroughly regulated one, there are a multitude of opportunities to provide consulting services to the industrial hemp growers across the nation, a field this brand has already started venturing into.
Founded in 2003, this company provides highly specialized consulting services to food manufacturing and agricultural industries. That includes Integrated Pest Management, which provides strategies for reducing pest pressures through weekly production area inspections and determining which remedies are most needed. This service could be further monetized through the sale of bulk remedies that can be recommended and sold through the company.
The brand also performs audits to ensure that a farming site meets certification level requirements for Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) standards. They also help prepare growers for both domestic and international second and third-party audits while aiding in the development of food safety prerequisite programs.
Over the past decade, this brand has created strong programs from their ability to advise, develop, train, support, and aid clients in the management of their own agricultural and food production businesses.
With a customer base of more than 200 clients and contracts as high as $10,000, more than 90% of their clients stay on long term, using their services for 5 years or longer. Part of this brand’s strength has been in successfully developing an extensive network of growers, consultants, packing houses, commodity groups, industry leaders, research organizations, and agriculture service companies.
