We congratulate Vivien and Howard Wong and the team at Little Moons on their recent sale of a significant minority stake to L Catterton.
We are delighted to have supported management on this transaction through the provision of vendor due diligence support, both commercial and operational – an opportunity once more to combine our industry experience with consulting rigour to deliver a great outcome for the client.
Little Moons co-founder Vivien Wong on the involvement of Food Strategy Associates: “We chose them because of the quality and experience of the people they put on the project and because of their knowledge in this space. As food sector specialists they quickly got under the skin of the business and category, and provided invaluable support to us on both the commercial and operational workstreams. They proved to be a great partner throughout the process – I genuinely enjoyed working with the team and I’m really glad we picked them”
With this transaction we cement our position as the number one provider of due diligence services to UK food and beverage.
