Roy Levy, Creative Director, Gail's
"Jess first joined GAIL’s NPD team, as a consultant, early last year.We were busy reinventing our seasonal chilled food offer (breakfast and deli pots, salads, lunch boxes and soups) and were lacking a strong nutritional agenda to complete it. Jess started by helping us understand the ideal nutritional balance for every concept and then, very sensitively, ushered us throughout the development process and reviewed every single recipe we came up with. She highlighted areas that needed fixing and suggested creative ways on how to improve those, while staying true to our initial concepts and recipes.With Jess’ scientific knowledge and deep understanding of our business commercial values, we ended up with 30 brand new recipes which stood the tests of taste and brand. Whilst we in GAIL’s, were always committed to cooking simple food using the best ingredients, it’s thanks to Jess that we now can do so with a solid nutritional view in mind. Since then, Jess has joined us every time we adapt our recipes and we simply can’t imagine developing a new recipe without having her input on what we create."

"My experience of working with Jessica has been life changing.
I am a middle aged woman who has dealt with allergy symptoms as well as gut problems for many years which really came to affect my life in several ways. I have seen numerous doctors over the years and gone through a wide range of conventional testing to get to the bottom of my health concerns, this without any real result. I have gone through test after test without ever really finding out what was the issue for me which I often found hard as I really wanted to get to the bottom of what might be causing my symptoms. As the problems escalated and got worse over the years they also began to really affect both my work life and private life. Six months ago I therefore decided to try a different route to feel better and I contacted Jessica who straight away took my problems seriously, really listened to me and was very understanding of my problems. Through our online meetings, mapping my diet and doing simple tests Jess could see patterns and analyse what was going on for me. Jess helped me understand the impacts of nutrition and lifestyle and gradually helped me make changes which to me have been life changing. I started noticing changes almost straight away and after years of suffering, my allergy and gut problems have been eradicated within just a few months. Jess has helped me manage diet and lifestyle changes which I never would have thought of myself but which have had an impact I didn’t think possible and she has been a fantastic support to me the whole time. I have got my life back and for that I am forever grateful to Jessica. Jessica is extremely competent, knowledgeable, attentive, warm, empathetic and professional and always made me feel comfortable and at ease. I really can not recommend Jessica highly enough and I hope that someone else, who might be in a similar situation to where I was a few months ago, might read this."

“Jess has helped us on a number of important projects over recent years. As well as providing nutritional analysis of dishes we have created, she has also made recipe and menu suggestions and added to the creative process. Jess gets things done, and realises that our clients expect a fast turnaround and error free analysis and input. She never fails to deliver and is for sure, our 'go to' expert."
"I had the pleasure of working with Jessica on a menu development project for a large F&B outlet in the UK. Jessica was very professional and efficient delivering all the nutritional information the client needed. She communicated very clearly her needs to achieve the work and the deliverables. I would love to work with Jessica again and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for nutritional advice and professional consultancy."
