WHAT WOULD YOU BE DOING IF YOU WEREN’T IN THE FOOD INDUSTRY?
Finishing my novel. It’s only taken 12 years so far…
WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST JOB?
I worked on the beach at a deck chair concession. Best summer ever.
WHAT INSPIRES YOU?
Endeavour. It is the one thing that links all species – the constant effort to improve or survive.
TEA OR COFFEE?
WHAT’S THE WORST JOB YOU’VE DONE?
I was a graphic designer for a short while at a printer. I was rubbish at it, not an artistic bone in my body and my boss was horrid. Thankfully I have a great design team working on our Sleep Well brand!
WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITEPART OF THE JOB?
Customer feedback – knowing that you have made a real positive difference for someone is awesome.
AND YOUR LEAST FAVOURITE?
HOW ABOUT THE FOOD INDUSTRY?
Unbelievably diverse and full of so many clever people doing amazing things with real passion
WHAT WOULD BE YOUR LAST SUPPER?
Picnic and a bottle of something nice with my family and the dog sitting by Alcock Tarn high above
the Lake District. I’m not sure you can get closer to heaven.
WHAT’S YOUR MOTTO?
What’s for you won’t go by you. Though on my tombstone I want “I still say I was right”.
WHAT’S THE WEIRDEST THING YOU’VE EVER EATEN?
Not sure if it’s weird but certainly the most offensive was andouille sausage in France.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE BOOK?
Currently, This is Going To Hurt by Adam Kay but there are hundreds on our study bookshelves I could read several times over.
SWEET OR SAVOURY?
