I couldn't say more positive things about the care and interest Bernard has in understanding my passion and also taking the time to really get a handle on my future goals and vision. His business acumen, vocabulary, awareness, and common sense approaches seem to be extremely sound and solid. I have found him to be dependable and most importantly to me I always feel he is in your corner and a real advocate. Everyone is looking for their share and piece of the pie and he wants to make sure you have yours and then some. He has been more of a partner and friend whom I can rely on to give it to me straight and also help me safely navigate around the corner and avoid the pitfalls. It is often said that time is money. He has saved me some of the former and a lot of the latter. I feel fortunate that I found The Greater Goods and Bernard. He has played an instrumental part as my business is transitioning and growing.

After a consultation with Bernard, I learnt about options that I never knew existed and thus I feel more confident and assured by Bernard and his team's expertise, connections, and their determination to help me, and all their customers.He shared with me so much valuable information that made all the difference in my decision. He's not only kind and knowledgable but both him and his team go that extra mile to make sure you're happy and successful.I especially value the fact that Bernard and his company only work with companies that create products that are in integrity, that aren't just health focussed, but actually care about what goes into their products and thus into their customers' bodies.Clean ingredients, sustainability and good work ethics are crucial.If your ingredients are clean and your mission is to be a solution to this endless world of toxic products and you too really care about what goes into your body and that of your customers, this is the company to work with because they'll help you get from point A to Z in a manner that suits your business and your needs.Thank you Bernard and team Greater Goods for being one of the rare exceptional companies to really care about your customers and go that extra mile to help us and our customers.Highly recommended!

As a new food business, navigating the path to profitability and growth can be tricky, with so many potential things that can go wrong. Bernard has been an incredible resource to help guide us through various issues. His wealth of experience in the food business was apparent right from our first consulting call where we discussed appropriately pricing our products for B2C/B2B. This first call brought a lot of clarity to some key issues around pricing that we were struggling to get right for a few months. We are looking forward to continue working with Bernard and The Greater Goods team to help guide us through key issues on our food entrepreneurship journey.

Bernard and The Greater Good has been an exceptional help to our product development and release project. Before working with Bernard it seemed like the wrong decision was so easy to be made which would have been detrimental to our business and financial affairs but lucky for us The Greater Good stepped in and made sure we were set up for success, They took all the pressure and stress of making mistakes away and gave us the blueprint to our goals. We cannot thank Bernard and The Greater Good enough for their help and for being such great people..

I work with Bernard in a professional capacity and can attest to his passion for the business and his integrity. He always puts customers' interests first. If you read a bad review here, understand that unscrupulous people post horrid reviews and then demand money to delete them. To get a dozen 5-star reviews and then a few genuine 1-star reviews is highly unlikely.

Very professional! Great to work with, highly recommended! Thank you!

Bernard has been a positive force for good for our food startup and a pleasure to do business with, ever since we we met him at the Fancy Food Show this January. It's been fantastic talking through strategies, and being connected with other like-minded folks in the cpg space. I also really love how our mission aligns with The Greater Goods, and together we are bringing more 'real' food products to the marketplace.

I met Bernard at the Fancy Food Show and am so happy that I did. Bernard is knowledgeable, easy to work with and someone you can trust. As a business it's hard to piece together the right team. We feel that we've found part of our team in The Greater Goods. I highly recommend them to any disruptive brands trying to navigate this challenging market.

We developed PawPad®, a next-generation protective cover designed for people who sleep with their dogs and cats and started selling online on our own site and in person at pet and home shows and events. The goal was always to also sell in bricks and mortar pet retailers. After many months of contacting brokers, buyers and distributors, we were not having a ton of success getting responses. Then at a meeting of local entrepreneurs, I was fortunate to meet Bernard. He introduced us to a Broker who deals with National and Regional chains of varying sizes and with varied product lines. They were instantly excited about our product and brand. In less than a week, we had signed a contract and we couldn’t be happier with the progress. Thank you to The Greater Goods!

Bernard is extremely knowledgable and is truly passionate about using his skills and connections to help businesses grow. He is a really powerful connector– with an ever-growing network of industry professionals. He has helped me with my own business and I have witnessed how he has helped others. If you are serious about growing your food-based business, give this man a call.
