Best Job Winner!
You may remember at the end of last year we advertised for the best job in the world – as our Creative Flavour Conductor, testing all the best food for us. Well it’s time for a big flavoursome welcome to Gemma Williams, who has been appointed in the role, up against some very impressive candidates. Thank you to all who applied for the job, we loved you all!
Gemma has developed products in savoury pastry, snacking and dessert markets for retail and foodservice customers such as Tesco, Waitrose and The Brakes Group. She is a strong project leader and natural innovator, who encompasses consumer trends and creativity into new product ranges. Having previously worked as Head of NPD and Process Development for Kensey Foods, she has led numerous successful launch programmes across core, seasonal and vegan desserts – some of which featured in national campaigns and received a range of accolades from Good Housekeeping, BBC Good Food and The Q awards.
Outside work, Gemma says she relishes time with her family “chasing dinosaurs, hunting dragons and making memories” – although she is originally from Cornwall, the only surfing Gemma enjoys includes trees and zip wires!
