Welcome!

Welcome to the Ragold Concepts Enhanced website!

My name is Rainer Schindler. My family has a long and renowned history in the confectionary business, originally founded in Germany more than a century ago. I came to the US as the young VP of Ragold confectionary, and grew a $10 million American venture. When Wrigley sought to purchase the US offshoot, I negotiated a 100% ROI acquisition.

I later ran the US operations of a £30M German nutritional supplement manufacturer, became Director of Sales & Marketing for Nutrilo USA, a private label powders and tablets company, and Sales Director for IFP, Inc., a $50M ingredient and formulation company.

Today, I run Ragold Concepts Enhanced and actively work with food and nutritional companies launching in the US. We are a market-savvy consulting group that guides European food and nutritional product companies through the challenges of breaking into the American market and accelerates their success. That’s because we:

1) Know both European and American business culture, and how to bridge the gap
2) Have an outstanding track-record with multi-million dollar companies and startups
3) Are active now, with up-to-date expertise and a proven network of partners to support all aspects of creating, launching and growing food and nutritional brands.
