Peter Thompson joins as operations director

Silvery Tweed Cereals has appointed a new operations director as it continues to strengthen its position as a leading supplier to the UK breakfast cereal, bread and bakery markets.

Peter Thompson brings more than 25 years’ experience to the role, which involves overseeing the family owned and managed company’s manufacturing, procurement and engineering operations across its site. His recent background in the fresh produce and fish processing sectors, which involved working directly with retailers, is ideally suited to Silvery Tweed Cereals, who work with both product manufacturers and Britain’s top retailers.

Peter says: “With such business longevity and a rich history stretching back almost 175 years, Silvery Tweed Cereals is greatly admired, particularly in the Borders.

“It’s an exciting position to take up at a time of considerable change in the food retailing market. This brings with it challenges, but also opportunities for those manufacturers who are at the top of their game and in tune with what retailers need most – that’s where I feel I can add value to the team most.”

Peter will work with three co-directors in a management team headed by managing director Bob Gladstone, the latest generation of the family which has continuously owned and managed the business since 1843.

Silvery Tweed Cereals manufactures a wide variety of cereal inclusions, including coated cereals and flakes, which are supplied to many of the UK’s top food brands. Employing more than 80, the company cleans and processes grain from growers who are mostly based in the Borders area within a 40 mile radius of Berwick.
