Our founder began her Food career in one of Europe's leading R&D facilities; fell into food recruitment and 'by jove' she found her calling! Nearly 18 years later Dhrutee is still enamoured by every facet of resourcing and the continual challenges faced by the food industry. A real straight shooter, she demands the finest in business and in life, simply doesn't accept second best. We like to think of her as our artful doyenne of talent management and all that's delicious! Couldn't survive without coffee and cheese.
Thoughtful and enthusiastic, she always perseveres to find the right solution. Rachel has worked in several food sectors from primary producers to luxury food ingredients. In one of her roles she brought to market San Marzano tinned tomatoes (for which Neil is eternally grateful!). Rachel is an accomplished home baker –a cup cake of a Charlie's Angel, we think of her as our own Mary Berry (just not as old) or Mrs Beaton (but much much more alive!).
An active and organized country bumpkin who enjoys traipsing about in the outdoors and is a former horse riding enthusiast. Her need to roam isn't just confined to Sussex either, she's a dedicated world traveller which may explain her talent for whizzing up a meal when presented with a scant selection of ingredients. Perpetually willing to help out and makes a mean cup of tea, both excellent qualities which keep things running smoothly in the office.
Straight talking, eloquent and very inquisitive she loves the world of food with her down time spent on cooking up nutritious delights as well as trying all the new products she can devour. We find ourselves being her guinea pigs during our monthly NPD tastings! She brings a wealth of food industry expertise having worked in NPD for some high profile brands and a major retailer. Her claim to fame is the development of an amazing first to market ‘free from’ lasagne that millions have eaten.
Coolly composed this laid-back gadget guru has an array of gizmos and gimmicks to bring a bit of the space-age into the office. He's a sweet-toothed snappy dresser who can make a mean mojito and his propensity for quirky quips has established him as king-of-the-one-liners, frequently poised to offer cheeky titbits to conversation.
With an eye for detail, was previously the Colombo of technical services to food & drink companies, large and small. Stands up for what is right and just. Ambition to teach Masterchef's John & Greg to eat with a knife and fork, it's a tough job but somebody HAS to do it! Food Hero Jamie Oliver – he's just so beautifully naive to try Herculean tasks where cynics wouldn't even take the time to try, Bless ' im!
Godfather of strategy and service provision. As well as a perpetual fountain of knowledge he's an excellent mentor and advisor, through rising to the top of his civil service career. With political savvy he always proves a great resource with proven solutions. Enjoys playing devil's advocate (a little too much we think!). Likes cricket..., no he loves it!
