My role involves managing products from concept through to launch, whilst meeting the critical path and customer deadlines.

Through this work I have introduced the business to Rubies in the Rubble - sustainable food brand who produces condiments out of surplus ingredients - who participated in our 4’R’ME plan awareness training.
