Starting new roles…  
 
Emma, from a family beef and arable farm in Northumberland, is about to complete a two year programme with MDS (Management Development Services), where she has also been working towards a Post Graduate Certificate in Fresh Produce Management.
 
“Working for three different companies through MDS, has been a rewarding experience,” explains Emma. “Two of these were with potato businesses, giving me experience in the agronomy and packing environment.”
 
“I’ve had a passion for potatoes ever since working on trial plots at Cambridge University Farm during a summer placement, whilst I was studying at Harper Adams University College.”
 
Emma has secured a full time position, as Potato Technical Manager with Spearhead Marketing Ltd, part of Greens of Soham Ltd and is looking forward to a fresh challenge and working with a new team. 
 
“I’m hoping to attend BP2013, in order to further develop my network of contacts in the industry. It’s a great event and I learnt a great deal from attending two years ago.”
