We are excited to announce that as the company has steadily grown we have some new faces to help in what we hope will be our biggest and best year yet!
One of our 3rd party growers, Joe Fisher, joined the business back in late 2015 as our Business Development Manager. In between helping run his family farm in Nottinghamshire, Joe will be responsible for finding new sales opportunities and developing customer relationships alongside Stephen. He will also play a key role in managing our quinoa trials this year and assist with the contracted growers we have across the UK.
Joe recently completed the MDS Ltd Graduate scheme in Food and Fresh Produce Management, where he enjoyed working in a variety of roles throughout the food supply chain. In his spare time, he enjoys playing sport, shooting and ski-ing when he’s not suffering from a dislocated shoulder!
Pippa Johnson joined us at the beginning of this year as our Office Administrator to help out with the ever increasing work-load that goes hand in hand with growing, processing & supplying Quinoa to an expanding customer base. Pippa has held a range of positions in her career up to now which will stand her in good stead for our evolving operations in Shropshire. She has just completed and achieved a qualification in Health & Nutrition, plus still works as a part-time counsellor for Cambridge Weight Plan and can vouch that any healthy diet should include British Quinoa!
In her spare time, Pippa enjoys travelling, spending quality time with friends & family and is currently looking forward to and helping organise her daughter’s wedding in California in August 2016.
