Experienced shift managers join Beacon Foods

12 August 2010

British ingredients specialist Beacon Foods has appointed two experienced production shift managers to help drive the company forward

John Lee, 30, from Treharris and Mark Nicholls, 47, from Newport, have welcomed the new career challenge offered by the innovative Brecon-based business.

John, who has spent the past 13 years working in the automotive industry as a shift manager, said: "I think it's good to have a new challenge and I am enjoying working for Beacon Foods in a totally different environment. I hope to be able to use my training and experience to drive the company forward.

"The food industry, like the automotive industry, is very competitive and we need to be on top of our game at all times to succeed."

Mark, a former Royal Marine, has gained valuable experience in the steel, automotive and food industries.

With seven years' experience of the food and drinks industry under his belt, he is keen to share his manufacturing knowledge and experience to help Beacon Foods continue to grow the business.

He has joined a new team at the company, which has also recently appointed technical manager Nicci Morgan Hurley.

"We are working together well as a team," said Mark. "The products we make at Beacon Foods are first class and the company is looking to introduce new lines in the future.

"It is very rewarding being part of a growing company and being able to introduce new things that will improve the business."

Both new production shift managers are keen sportsmen, John being a cricketer for Nelsen and Mark a golfer and former mini rugby coach who represented Wales at rugby and swimming as a schoolboy.

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. The ingredients are used in a vast range of food products.
