"CCD Helmsman has taken my best laid plans and ideas and turned them into a reality I didn’t even think was possible. It delivered superb, differentiated, and delicious solutions — and then translated them into commercialized products that can be consistently and affordably produced. And best of all, consumers love them. The team at CCD Helmsman has the long-time experience and nuanced judgment that led to success. They have been a great partner in my food innovation journey."
