Founder Wendy Bartlett said: “I am delighted to welcome these incredibly talented people into our BM family. We have always worked hard to ensure that we constantly invest in our business, and people are a critical part of that process.
“As one of the only truly independent businesses, we are pleased that more clients are looking to us to help them provide their businesses with a food offer they can be proud of.
“We know that, in order to keep growing in a sustainable way, we need to find people whose values are aligned to ours. Our fundamentally foodie values aren’t just a piece of marketing, they define everything we do. That’s why we invest a lot of time and resource to recruit and retain the very best people in our sector. We are incredibly proud to make these appointments and we’re looking forward building on our already amazing business operations.”
