With Teresa's extensive knowledge of the British retail landscape we are very fortunate that she has joined the show team. Once a keen competitor she'll be casting her expert eye over the competition fruit.
The latest in a long family line of fruit show members, Sarah has been our chair for the last 11 years. She has also competed at the show and at the last count has only missed 8 in her lifetime...
Not content with five years as the society's vice-chair, our favourite AHDB veteran has just taken up the reins of the charity's trustee board.
CFO of Avalon Produce, Chris is an invaluable addition to the show team. Assisted by Liz and Sarah, our accounts are in good hands.
Annette has consistently been the one to beat in the competition, a stalwart member of the general committee for many years we are delighted that she has agreed to become one of two new vice-chairs and has taken on the remit for education.
Well known to most of our grower members, Estera has been a dynamic member of our general committee for several years. We are so pleased that she has agreed to become one of our two new Vice-Chairs and has taken on the remit for the trade show.
Truly outstanding in her field, it was a great day when Sam adopted the fruit show and developed our education programme. Now leading a small but perfectly formed team, she is also one of the first land-based STEM ambassadors.
Truly one of the best examples of poacher turned gamekeeper we can think of. Brian and Norma, once the ones to beat, now nurture and lead the competitive elements of our show.
Always the one to beat, Norma is now our expert voice in all things competition. Her knowledge of the industry (and our rules) is encyclopaedic, its all good news for the fruit display.
The latest member of our office team, Laura already seems like she's been part of the show for years. She is responsible for all elements of the trade stand areas and is the brains behind the new layout.
Where would we be without an expert to shout about the brilliance of the fruit on the display and the great innovations brought to the show by the exhibitors? Alex is great asset to our team.
