Two young women have chosen to develop their careers with British ingredients specialist Beacon Foods after being impressed by the support offered by the family run business.

Tracy Pritchard, 29, has returned to the Brecon based business as quality materials controller after the birth of her son, Ellis, while Sara King, 23, is a trainee accounts assistant who is in the final year of a business administration degree.

Tracy, who was specification co-ordinator for five years during her first spell with the company, said she was delighted to return. “I have had quite a lot of experience in different roles within the company, but technical is my niche and I really love cooking,” she said. “Beacon Foods is a good company to work for and they are very supportive.”

Sara previously worked in accounts and sales for another company in Brecon before spending a year travelling in Australia. She was attracted to Beacon Foods by the opportunity to work in a small accounts team and is looking forward to starting an Association of Accounting Technicians qualification next year, as aims to develop her career.

“Beacon Foods has been very supportive of my studies and has give me a chance to learn new roles,” she said.

Beacon Foods is a UK specialist producer of roasted and char grilled vegetables and fruit ranges, relishes, chutneys and sauces.
