About us

BSc (Hons) Food Technology (University of Reading), MSc Postharvest Technology (Cranfield University), MSc Human Nutrition (University of Chester)

A lead auditor with experience of supplier auditing in Europe, Middle East and African countries, I worked to resolve various technical issues to ensure compliance with customer and legal requirements.

During my 17 years in the food industry I have provided customer facing technical assistance on M&S, Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Asda, Morrison’s and Co-op accounts as a technical manager at the Bakkavor Group.

I have delivered projects that have introduced innovation into the product range, improved quality within the supply chain, updated technical standards and implemented systems conforming to new customer standards.

In addition I spent 5 years auditing the Bakkavor supply chain (a mix of high and low risk businesses) including fresh produce growers to the M&S Field to Fork standard.

With a network of colleagues from food industry, academia and the nutrition world to draw on, resource from food safety consultants, auditors, post-doctorate researchers, trainers and Nutritionists is available when required.

Alo Solutions focuses on you and your team to understand their key needs and address them in a way that gives the business sustainable systems that can be built on, knowledge that informs them and confidence to make the right decisions.
