"Pleese Foods is really lucky to have worked with the 15/16 Group. Sergio helped us secure a co-packer and save over half a million dollars in setting up our own production facility. The team is very knowledgeable and extremely reliable. The 15/16 Group aren't just consultants, they are an integral part of the team. If you want an experienced and professional team to take your company from concept to reality, then you need to work with Sergio and 15/16 Group."- Kobi R., CEO/Founder, Pleese Cheese
"Sergio and Rob are knowledgeable and well-networked, which is crucial to successful scaling in CPG. They helped Minna build relationships with copackers across the country and establish processes that have kept us organized and able to keep up with our own growth. We'll work with them again in our next phases."- Dyanna S., CEO of Minna
"15/16 & I collaborated on several manufacturing & regulatory tasks in support of the commercialization of a line of aseptic beverages & protein powders. I relied on 15/16 to quickly execute several critical product certifications, including Non-GMO Project, OU Kosher, Vegan.org & GFCO (Gluten-Free Cert. Org.). With 15/16 help, we vetted several powder contract manufacturers, executed an RFP & onboarded the winner under a tight timeline. His manufacturing & quality expertise added tangible value to the process. 15/16 brings solid functional expertise & a passion for the work to his clients & I'd welcome the opportunity to work with him again."- Brad M., COO of OWYN
"Working with Sergio and his team was fantastic, he helped us think through the long-term implications of key decisions to make sure we were building an operational footprint that we're going to be happy with not just now but when we are 10, 20, and 30 times our current size. Instrumental in taking our operations to the next level, and a pleasure to work with."- Ted T., Founder of Keto and Co.
“Excellent results, the right way” is the phrase that comes to mind when I reflect back on my time working with Sergio. He is an analytical thinker who quickly assessed the performance, strengths and opportunities within his teams and then decisively implemented the necessary organization changes, tools, techniques that dramatically improved the plant’s operation. Sergio’s leadership was always steady, straightforward, and compassionate. His passion and enthusiasm are always present and infectious. People follow him for the right reasons – a rare leadership trait in many organizations...."- Joe L., VP of Manufacturing of King's Hawaiian
