Seasonings producer Dalziel Ingredients has hired two new members to its product development team, Alex Ramsay and Ellen Brimacombe, as food technologists.

Ramsay joins from Orchard House Foods, where she had two years’ experience in process development, having previously graduated with a degree in food science and nutrition from Northumbria University.

She will work closely with the production and quality teams at Dalziel’s NPD and manufacturing centre in Gateshead, which now manufactures a broad range of bespoke ingredients.

Brimacombe has joined from Symington’s after 14 months in the food industry, having graduated with a degree in food science and nutrition from Sheffield Hallam University.

Fill gaps in the food industry

Working with the customers and Dalziel’s sales team, she will analyse product requirements and develop sample concepts and flavours to help the company fill gaps in the food industry.

This July will also see the manufacturer take on student Katie Richmond on a one-year placement from Northumbria University, where she is studying food science and nutrition. Richmond joins a number of students who have taken placements at the company since 2008.

Dalziel’s 13-strong product development team advises food manufacturers across the UK on flavour trends, market analysis, factory processes, recipe formulations and product quality enhancements.

In August last year, the company started work on a new £2.5m warehouse extension to increase storage capacity, after demand for gluten-free ingredients doubled in three years.

Warehouse extension

The 1,486m2​​ warehousing facility at Dalziel’s Gateshead factory holds an additional 1,400 pallets, the supplier said. It also installed a fourth packing line at the site.

Meanwhile, ingredients manufacturer Tate & Lyle has appointed Imran Nawaz as its new chief financial officer,​ with effect from 1 August 2018. Construction was completed earlier this year, creating ten new jobs.

He joined the company from Mondelēz, where he has served as senior vice-president of finance in Europe since 2014.
