New Sales Manager at Silvery Tweed
We have welcomed a new Sales Manager to the team. Chris Green takes over the role from Andy Smith who has departed for pastures new.
Chris brings 19 years’ experience working in the foodservice industry, starting out with SIF Iceland Seafood and Coca Cola, before gaining experience in a variety of Regional and National Account Manager positions culminating in 8 years with Santa Maria UK as Senior National Account Manager.
He says, “The opportunity to work with such a professional and respected company is fantastic. I’m in the process of learning all about the (repetition of company) products and I cannot wait to get out and meet clients to see how we can best meet their needs.”
Mark Jackson, Sales Director at Silvery Tweed, adds, “We thank Andy for all he has done for Silvery Tweed, and wish him well in his new role. We are excited to have Chris in the team he has considerable experience in the food industry and brings with him great energy and drive. We know that both our existing customers and those who move over to Silvery Tweed products will enjoy working with him and know that their needs are being well looked after.”
A leading supplier to the UK breakfast cereal, bread and bakery markets, Silvery Tweed employs more than 90 people, cleaning and processing grain from growers mostly based in the Borders area, within a 40-mile radius of its Berwick-upon-Tweed base.
The company manufactures a variety of cereal products, ranging from the straightforward – flour, cereal flakes, grain and seed blends – to the unusual, with bespoke products such as puffed grains and granola clusters supplied to many of the UK’s top cereal and bakery brands.
