Michael Fougere

Founded in 2010 by Michael Fougere after a more than 20-year career successfully working for the who’s who of the food and beverage Industries, Bayview Consulting Group works with entrepreneurial-spirited clients across the country. From small startups to emerging growth companies, we help clients launch their brand, improve their operations, optimize costs, navigate the certification process, and more.

With a wealth of experience in the natural/organic food, beverage, supply chain and nutritional supplements industries, Michael uses his expertise to help clients optimize their operations and increase their margins.

We don’t succeed unless you do, too. You might have a concept, product and a vision, but lack the operational support in getting that product manufactured and to market. In today’s CPG world, all the costs are in supply chain and freight. Bayview Consulting Group has the experience to help your company get to market on time and at lower costs than you can do on your own.  

Whether it’s manufacturing, supply chain, logistics/distribution, project management, COGS optimization or certifications (organic, kosher, gluten free, non-GMO), we provide the support to help you reach your goals. Look at it this way: we’ve had over 20 years to learn from our mistakes, so you don’t have to learn from yours!

With deep expertise in manufacturing, product and package development, supply chain, packaging, logistics, distribution and customer service, Michael has successfully launched more than 100 commercial products for companies including Coca Cola, Wyeth Nutritionals, InZone Brands and POM Wonderful. He’s also worked with a wide range of clients, from Ocean Spray, Zico Coconut Water, and Muscle Milk to UB Real, MOJO Cold Brewed Coffee and Finest Kind Tea. As an executive, Michael has demonstrated experience helping companies realize millions of dollars in cost savings and has implemented efficiencies that have optimized their business. He’s developed a network he calls “The Best of the Best” and brings this network to bear for his clients in areas including product development, sales/distribution, graphic design and marketing.

Regardless of the size of your project, Bayview Consulting Group is happy to work with you. Best of all, our fees are easily offset by the savings we generate for our clients. We are committed to delivering every project on time and on budget and will leverage our network of expert resources to ensure you only work with the best of the best. Whether you are just developing your manufacturing and supply chain infrastructure or want to identify cost savings within your operations, Michael and the team at Bayview Consulting Group will develop a winning strategy for your business.
