New general manager joins Chippindale Foods

1st April 2014

Claire Anderson joins us with a wealth experience from a food manufacturing background. Graduating in 2001 from Sheffield Hallam with a Food Marketing Management degree, Claire joined the Northern Foods Graduate Scheme. She spent 9 years gaining a variety of experience through being a Product Technologist, Production Supervisor and a Project Manager in a variety of businesses – from ready meal manufacturers, sandwich & sushi producers to bakeries, and more central project roles.

After Northern Foods, Claire took time out from the UK, spending 6 months working for Schweppes as a Project Manager in Australia, before spending a number of months travelling around Australia seeing the sights (and journeying 20,000kms in a campervan) and heading home via Asia.

Prior to joining Chips, Claire worked for Heinz as a Production Manager and had great success through managing teams, implementing projects and introducing continuous improvement ways of working to reduce costs and improve efficiencies.
