LeMond Management offers over 35 years of project management in the food and beverage industry.

When we meet with clients we discuss the scope of the project or we develop the scope to meet the goals of the company and product.

Six Sigma is a tool we use to understand every detail of this process, evaluating and optimizing as well as reviewing costs and schedules; from the mixing / blending of ingredients to the processing of the product to the packaging needs of the project. We at LeMond Management use a specialized Six Sigma format we have developed for the food industry to expedite the review of questions and assist the Team for a successful project.

All stages of the project are reviewed & understood. The involvement and training of each department is critical if the prject is to be successful.

We usually develop a small plant team (represented by a member of each department) Production, Safety, Sanitation, etc. and we are involved fully with the detailed scope of work, layouts, costs, equipment selection, to ensure the needed goals of the project and timeline are met.
