Our values

Mission statement

At Farrelly Mitchell, our mission is to empower governments, agencies, businesses, and investors by delivering actionable, evidence-based insights that drive sustainable growth and profitability in the food and agricultural sector.

Farrelly Mitchell was founded upon a core set of values that reflect the dynamic, diverse, and evolving agrifood industry. Guided by these values, we help tackle the most pressing issues facing the agrifood industry such as climate change, food insecurity, while helping our clients achieve sustainable economic growth.

Our values

Professional excellence

We strive for excellence in everything we do. Our experts offer unrivalled attention to detail, specialised knowledge, and a relentless focus on quality. We have an unwavering dedication to expanding our skills and staying up-to-date with the latest industry trends and technological advancements in food and agriculture.


We pride ourselves on our ability to provide unbiased and objective guidance to our clients. Regardless of whether we are providing due diligence services, market insights, sustainability reports or any other service our work is based solely upon rigorous analysis and empirical data. You can trust that our recommendations will be independent, discreet, and reliable.

Ethical integrity

Our dedication to ethical practices ensures that every decision we make is grounded in honesty, transparency, and integrity. We believe in doing the right thing, even when nobody is looking.

Client-centric focus

Our clients are at the core of our operations, and their success is our primary objective. Our solutions are uniquely tailored to each client, with whom we build strong and lasting relationships.


We believe that the agrifood industry can thrive if it embraces perspectives and talents from various backgrounds. We strive for diversity and inclusivity in our offices, as well as designing key interventions for clients that promote race and gender equality.

Our goals

Commitment to the planet

We recognise the impact that our industry has on climate change, and we are committed to reducing it. As food and agribusiness consultants, we play a unique role in achieving long-term global sustainability goals, as we can influence some of the largest food and agribusinesses worldwide. Our ESG and sustainability experts have worked on countless projects worldwide, informing businesses, governments, and agencies on the most sustainable practices.

We are also dedicated to reducing our own carbon footprint, with recent WFH and bike-to-work schemes lowering office energy use and commuter related emissions. Recent initiatives have improved recycling facilities, reduced paper waste, and replaced plastic delph/cutlery with reusable alternatives.

Breaking the cycle of malnutrition

Food insecurity and malnutrition is a pressing concern for the food and agricultural industry. We work tirelessly to find solutions to these problems and support our clients in producing nutritious food, improving farming practices, and enhancing distribution systems.

We have recently provided pro bono supports to developing nations struggling with food insecurity, including holistic funding for primary and secondary students in West Africa.

Supporting economic growth

Value creation is at the heart of our operations. Economic growth is a primary target for many of our clients, therefore our recommendations must be commercially viable for the success of our clients as well as the overall economic prosperity of the agrifood industry.
