I am passionate about the food industry but I believe in maximizing the use of resources at every stage to ensure sustainability and high quality products are presented to the public. This involves a high level understanding of agriculture, horticulture, meat, seafood, manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, nutrition, health & well being, finance, strategy and most importantly, people.

International Experience

I have substantial international experience across a wide range of countries and across many cultures.
