Specialist advice for businesses across the entire food and drink supply chain

Overview

Accountants & Financial Advisers for Restaurants, Catering, Farm Shops & More

From artisan producers and craft breweries to cheese makers and award-winning cuisine, at Old Mill we work with a wide range of local, national and international businesses from across the South West’s vibrant food and drink sector.

The South West is at the forefront of the UK’s thriving food and drink sector with many regional success stories from local producers to world-renowned, export-led businesses making real headway in global markets. The region has long been recognised as a hub for both fine dining and wholesome food, with the finest locally made and sourced produce supported by strong farming and fishing communities. And with a host of breweries, vineyards and cider makers to add to the mix, we soon recognised the need to establish a team of specialist advisers working specifically with businesses in the food and drink industry.

We work closely with numerous clients across the entire food and drink supply chain. And alongside our specialist sector knowledge, those clients also have the expertise and experience of the wider Old Mill team to draw upon.

R&D tax claims, moving into international markets, exit strategies and more

So if you’re looking for funding sources and financial planning for a new food and drink venture – we can help. If you’re an artisan pie maker in need of support with Research & Development (R&D) tax claims, a baker determined to buy new premises, or a vineyard vying for a slice of the international market – come and talk to us. And if you’re looking to call last orders on your business, we can work with you to plan an exit strategy that will further enable you to enjoy the finer things in life.

Whatever your aims and aspirations – for yourself and your food and drink business – we look forward to helping you achieve them.

To chat to us about your plans, get in touch with us or book an appointment at one of our offices in Exeter, Wells, Chippenham and Yeovil.

"What attracted us to Old Mill was their rural and food credentials;

they are known in the agricultural space across the West Country and have genuine Food & Drink specialists who understand the entire supply chain, which means we can readily plug into that expertise.”

The reassurance of knowing that there is reliable and professional guidance and support readily available at all times, should, it be needed.
