What was your first job?
Working on the fondant fancy line at Mr Kipling’s cakes.
What do you like about your job?
Having the opportunity to harness all the extraordinary knowledge and experience of our members and those in the Government we liaise with to work together to develop an industry which can make such efficient use of resources and a significant contribution to mitigating Climate Change.
What’s been your toughest challenge?
Trying to harness the above, whilst at the same time get off the ground a new trade association in a new industry suffering from lack of Government support in the midst of a global financial crisis!

I love food! Simply cooked, local food beautifully cooked. Almost impossible to say one favourite food – sweet pink grapefruits, spinach, mulberries, lamb chops, scallops, Artisan du chocolat chocolates…
Who is your hero?
There are lots of people to admire but one of the first to inspire me was Dame Rosalyn Higgins, the first female judge at the International Court of Justice in the Hague
How do you relax?
Eating (!), being with friends, cooking, exploring the arts, walking, cycling, gardening, horse-riding, reading the weekend FT in bed on Saturday mornings
