Branston appoints new director
UK potato supplier Branston has appointed Sharon Affleck as its new sales and marketing director. She will be responsible for commercial insights, sales and product development for UK potato supplier Branston.
With more than 20 years’ experience in fresh produce, Sharon began her career in technical and account management looking after avocados, apples and pears at Worldwide Fruit and prior to joining Lincoln-based Branston, worked her way through the ranks at fresh food supplier G’s Fresh from commercial manager, through to managing director of G’s Fresh Vegetables.
Branston produces main crop, seasonal varieties and prepared products for national supermarkets and wholesalers and processes more than 300,000 tonnes of potatoes every year through its three sites in Lincolnshire, Somerset and Perth in Scotland.
Managing director James Truscott said: “We’re thrilled to have Sharon on board. She is vastly experienced and joins us at an important time for the business. Her ideas, fresh perspective and knowledge will be of great benefit to Branston and our valued customers.”
