VALUE BASED BUSINESS ASESSMENT

REALISTIC AND MARKET-DRIVEN ASSESSMENT OF VALUE

Food Resource Management specialises in business assessment in the food industry, particularly supporting medium-sized enterprises ( 20 million € turnover) in the acquisition of equity. Since the value of a company is composed of a variety of influencing factors, we analyse not only past financial figures, but also potential turnover, costs, investments, and results. We work with a network of proficient accountants, auditors, lawyers, and insolvency experts in order to present our results to you objectively, reliably, and promptly.
