The Good Food Group officially turned 4 years old this week, and it has been an amazing journey so far. Since our last birthday, we’ve welcomed new members to the team, scaled up our office space and sold hundreds of thousands of units in retail – not a bad year, right?
We’ve broken down some of our year highlights below for you to read👇👇
The Good Food Group Family Expanded
In the past year, we have welcomed new members to the Good Food Group team across all divisions of our business. As our list of clients and exciting own-projects develop, we’ve recruited the best talent in the business to keep our standards high.
Emma, our newest account manager has fitted in perfectly to the team after just 3 months of being with us – Emma has previous experience in being a Retail Buyer and has now switched over to the other side of being a National Key Account Manager; helping our partner brands disrupt the retail market.
Sam, has adapted into many roles for the business, proving to be an invaluable asset – Sam has now progressed to Client Liaison Manager and holds conversations with our partner brands everyday, as well as being responsible for bringing new brands into the business.
We found a new home! (kind of)
As our team has expanded, we have scaled up our office to one that is twice the size! We are still in our beautiful, countryside building – which was once an old mill, believe it or not.
Nestled in the heart of Mansfield, Nottinghamshire our cosy office space is the perfect workplace. And you can chill out on our green & yellow sofas at the end of a hard-working day.
Most importantly, the space is officially #GeorgieApproved.
