New technical manager for Beacon Foods

10 March 2010

Catrin Davies will remember 2009 with pride - starting with the help she gave Beacon Foods in achieving the BRC Global Standard for Food Safety with a grade A

Then, in June, she wed Carmarthenshire dairy farmer Ioan Davies and ended the year with a promotion to technical manager at the Brecon-based company following the retirement of long serving John Watkeys.

"It was a memorable year and I am looking forward to exciting challenges in 2010," said Catrin, who lives near Llandovery. "My main aim is the drive forward the ethos of continual improvement both in production and with our quality systems.

"2009 was a challenging time for most food companies but achieving a grade A in the BRC audit emphasised the quality that we offer at Beacon Foods."

The BRC is the lead trade association representing UK retailers, many of which will only consider doing business with suppliers who have gained certification to the appropriate BRC Global Standard

Catrin joined Beacon Foods as quality assurance manager three and a half years ago, having previously enjoyed a work placement with the company as part of a food science honours degree at Nottingham University.

A family business established in 1993, Beacon Foods employs around 100 people and is the UK's leading specialist producer of roasted and char grilled vegetables and fruit ranges, relishes, chutneys and compotes.
