Our buying manager Helen spent years in procurement roles with Waitrose and in the independent retail sector. After a short stint as a commercial manager, Helen set up her own consultancy to support Scottish food producers and help them find opportunities in new emerging markets. One of her clients was the Food and Drink Hub, before long James asked her to join the team and the rest as they say … is history.
Helen manages most of our supplier relationships and is our expert in product development, fast moving consumer goods and short-life products. As the hubs philosophy is to work cross-functionally she can often be found working on a range of projects with customers. Ever the dedicated professional, outside of work Helen can be found broadening her category knowledge at meeting of her local Gin club.
