Renata Faldo, of Mistley-based food ingredients firm EDME, has been promoted to technical director.
“We welcome Renata’s expertise on to the company board," comments EDME's managing director Metin Fevzi.
"Her strategic approach, unassuming, effective style of leadership, exacting standards and ambition for the business will make an important contribution.”
Since starting as EDME’s laboratory technician some 10 years ago, Faldo has been promoted four times.
“Her conscientiousness, dedication and commitment to team-working have been big assets in all the roles she has held,” adds Fevzi.
“Her achievements set an example to anyone wanting to develop technical careers in the food sector.”
In her previous position as quality manager, Faldo was overseeing the company’s quality controls and processes.
She led the activities to ensure the highest rating for the British Retail Consortium (BRC) announced audit for three years running, most recently in November 2018.
