This has accelerated and enabled our business development decision-making, and I fully recommend them to other international marketers."

Gary Sheahan, Regional Sales Director, Glanbia

"Orrani have delivered a number of high quality research projects covering the European and Russian dairy sectors. Their strong 'in-market' experience combined with an ability to clearly articulate and interpret developments have helped provide excellent outputs that are of direct benefit to our client companies. We would have no hesitation about recommending Orrani Consulting to companies seeking to carry out research into the dairy sector."

International Marketing Analyst, Leading Food Industry Organisation

"We have used Orrani's services for developing detailed industry reports and found them excellent - they were clear up front about project timelines, scope and costs, and delivered a quality product that met all of their promises, while being easy to work with."

Matt Bolger, Fonterra

"We retained Orrani Consulting first in late 2006 because of their extensive experience in providing strategic insight into the world dairy industry and developing markets. The CMAB found that the Orrani team took a very proactive approach to our projects and is now helping our organisation and industry to develop distribution in key international markets. They have approached our projects with only the highest level of integrity and commitment and are always working to go the extra mile to produce world class results."

Stan Andre, CEO, California Milk Advisory Board

"Our organisation has enjoyed a longstanding relationship with the team at Orrani Consulting since the mid-1990s. We have engaged them upon a wide variety of research consultancy assignments assessing business opportunities and strategic issues in key markets such as the US and in developing regions such as Asia, Latin America and Africa. We value their expertise in the international food industry and particularly the dairy sector very highly and expect to continue to work in partnership with Orrani Consulting."

Michael Harvey, Industry Analyst – International, Dairy Australia

"Orrani Consulting provided expert advice to a tight deadline to enable us to make an informed appraisal of a potential investment target in a specialised sector of the food industry. We would strongly recommend them as an insightful, flexible, honest and cost-effective support to strategic and financial decision-making on food industry issues."

SVP, $85B alternative asset manager

"Orrani have a real understanding of the global dairy industry because they roll their sleeves up and get out there in the market to find the real insights that make the difference. This means they really try to understand what we're looking for. I read Orrani reports from cover to cover and I can't say that about all reports that I see."

Fraser Tooley, Growth Initiatives Director, FrieslandCampina Domo

Annette Brune and her team of experts at Orrani conducted a review of the Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute’s (ASMI) Southern Europe Marketing Program – funded in part by USDA MAP funds – in 2011-12. The evaluation they produced exceeded expectations by providing incisive and actionable recommendations for Program Managers as well as a cost/benefit analysis that demonstrated the merit of the program to USDA. While it is common to get well-written evaluations, they frequently wind up only being read by program managers. A testament to the quality of the work that was done was that many seasoned Alaska seafood industry members requested the report for the in-depth seafood market research and it continues to be used as a reference today. Excellent work!

Joe Jacobson, International Program Director, Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute (ASMI)

USAPEEC has utilised the research services of Orrani Consulting on two major projects. In both cases, we received outstanding service, thorough follow-up and market information that was very timely and useful to the industries we represent. We highly recommend Orrani Consulting and plan to continue to use their services for many future projects.

Greg Tyler, VP of Marketing, USA Poultry and Egg Export Council (USAPEEC)
