Looking for Commercial Bakery Consultant


I'm very new here - so i hope it's okay to post this. 

I have 'inherited' an amazing sourdough bakery & viennoiserie business. It was previously doing quite well, and has great product quality - but probably what i'd describe as 'ad hoc' production planning, resulting in low stocks. 

I'm working on a few things; improving ingredients, understanding capacity & the team operations, towards stabilising the business. To help with this, i'm looking for a consultant (to support online) to help with professional advice. 

Any ideas or suggestions very welcome!

Where are you located, generally?  Country/region?

I have no affiliation, this came from a 30 second Google search.

That's a great link - thank you!

Based in the Middle East. 

Most of the bakery people here are either hotel employees running resort production, or in very commercial scale facilities.
