Happy Family Organics
Group Technical Excellence Manager
AB World Foods Ltd
I graduated in Biochemistry in 1985, and since then I have been fortunate enough to accumulate 34 years’ experience working in a variety of new product, processes and R&D departments of FMCG (Fast Moving Consumer Goods) food manufacturing businesses both in the UK domestic and International sectors covering frozen, chilled and ambient retail and food service products. During my years of food manufacturing development, I’ve managed and led new product and process projects, and I have had the privilege of heading new product and process development teams over multiple sites and countries. Currently, I work for Associated British World Foods Limited based in Leigh (north-west of Manchester, UK ), and in June 2019 I moved into a new role of overseeing the technical aspect of new major investments in ABWF, while also advising, mentoring and training technical departments and associated line-managers.
