EHL Ingredients, a leading importer, blender and supplier of food ingredients, has announced the appointment of a new product development manager to lead the development of new blends, which will enhance the current product range.

She established her development expertise in creating chilled and ambient sauces as well a wide range of dry products from conception to launch for customers in food manufacturing, retail and butchery sectors.

The organic, health food shops and speciality food stores will also be catered for.

Commenting on her appointment, Katherine said: “Creating and launching new blends is paramount to the company’s expansion plans this year, as marinades, coatings and rubs are a fast growing food trend that demands constant attention and modification. I’m excited to be joining the team and developing new ingredient blends to add to EHL’s successful portfolio.”

Katherine has also held NPD and Food Technologist roles at Robertson’s (based in South Africa) and has developed products for Knorr, Hellman’s and KFC. She will be based at the company’s head office in Reddish, Stockport, and will report to Tasneem Backhouse, Sales and Marketing Director.

As part of a strategic plan to capitalise on growth opportunities within the cold food & snacks market, Faerch Plast – one of Europe’s leading manufacturers of plastic packaging for the food industry – has appointed three new Business Development Managers for the South, North East and North West.

Darren Percy is new Business Development Manager for the South and joins Faerch Plast from Benson Box where he was National Account Manager. Prior to this, he spent five years at Veriplast Solutions Ltd (now Paccor Group) as UK & Ireland Sales Manager. He has also enjoyed roles at Swan Mill Paper Company, Ecolab, Dohler Group and JohnsonDiversey.

Richard Wild is responsible for generating new business in the North East. Richard started his packaging sales career at LINPAC Packaging where he spent 13 years in various roles including Regional and Senior Key Account Manager and European Food Service Marketing Manager. Most recently, he worked for SAICA Pack and Solo Cup Company.

Piyush Ladd’s remit covers the North West and he joins from Sealed Air Corporation where he was EMEA Account Manager. Before that, he spent almost eight years at LINPAC Packaging in various sales related roles including Sales Development Manager and Divisional Pricing Manager.

Faerch Plast Managing Director, Joe Iannidinardo comments: “We are pleased to welcome Darren, Richard and Piyush to the UK sales team, all of whom bring fresh thinking as well as significant experience of the packaging industry.

Top Management Strengthened At Pecan Deluxe Candy
Leading inclusions specialist Pecan Deluxe Candy (Europe) has strengthened its top management team with several heavyweight appointments and promotions to boost its presence in European and Middle/Far Eastern markets.

The global bakery, QSR and foodservice inclusions expert has promoted former Commercial Director Graham Kingston to the position of Managing Director, as outgoing MD Allan Dew moves to a Non-Executive Director role. As two of his first tasks, Mr Kingston appointed Andrew Pitt as Operations Director and Rachael Dunbar as Business Development Manager for Europe. Both new hires come with an impressive pedigree: Andrew boasts over a decade in food production with blue-chip firms, honing his expertise in technical and processing areas; whilst Rachael brings with her extensive experience in business development at a worldwide leader in food ingredients.

Andrew has taken responsibility for all aspects of operations, including supply chain, production, engineering, stores, and logistics, and expects to utilise his site management and continuous improvement skill sets to maximise production outputs. Rachael has been tasked with developing the company’s already significant presence throughout Europe, focusing in particular on the firm’s flagship cookie dough and praline products.

Alongside the newcomers, Charlotte Walker has been promoted to the position of UK Sales Controller and simultaneously has taken on a key role in the marketing team in order to support the company’s new sales strategy.

Graham Kingston commented: “Pecan Deluxe Europe already has a widespread customer base in Europe and the Middle East. Our intention is to strengthen our profile in potential new markets and increase sales to existing customers by ensuring that our messages of quality, versatility, service and speed are broadcast loud and clear to all our prospects, and as a timely reminder to current customers. I have the utmost confidence that our new management team has the skills, experience and commitment to deliver effectively on this strategy.”

Pecan Deluxe is already the biggest European supplier of cookie dough pieces in a range of sizes, which feature in many household name premium ice creams as well as QSR and gastro-pub desserts. All Pecan Deluxe products are made entirely of natural ingredients in segregated facilities, and the company is constantly innovating to meet demand from a growing number of manufacturers for new flavour and texture options.
