Ulrick & Short, the clean-label ingredient developer, has appointed Karen Carlyle, former executive director of the regional food group for Yorkshire & Humber, to its board.
Adrian Short, director of Ulrick & Short, says: “We have had a fantastic year, growing some 50% in the last 12 months. The appointment of Karen is the icing on the cake. She comes with vast experience of the food industry and has transformed the regional food group into an effective campaigner for producers."
Carlyle trained at Marks & Spencer and spent 15 years with the company, before moving on to senior roles and board positions at Asda and Greencore. She joined the regional food group in 2004.
