Managing Director (Interim)

I joined in October 2020 and have spent the last twenty (plus) years working in food across confectionery, meals, seafood and bakery. I am proud to lead and be a part our unique business. I am married with three daughters and Fieldfare chocolate twists are a family favourite in our house but not the only one. I love food and very much live to eat. I also love running….. and I run so I can enjoy what I eat!

I’ve spent my whole career working in the farming retail and catering industry and have a real passion for food and cooking! The last 9 years, I have been a farm shop manager which is where I discovered field fare! 

My love of food has also lead to my recent discovery of swimming & running to help fight off the middle-age spread! I love the outdoors & am a bit of dare devil as I like to try new challenges most recently wake boarding & indoor skydiving!

Regional Sales & Business Development Manager, South East

I’ve spent a number of years working for the UK’s biggest food service and dairy producer and have worked closely with farmers in the past, so I understand how challenging, yet rewarding, it can be to be involved in the farming industry.

I enjoy playing football and also manage  a local team.  I love spending time with my beautiful young daughter too.

I have one teenage son, who is a budding heavy metal drummer (hmmm thanks for that!). I, myself, am passionate about music and in my spare time can be found teaching/playing clarinet and saxophone.
