Speciality ingredients supplier Cornelius has appointed Adrian Barnfield as sales manager.

Barnfield has joined the business from CSM Bakery Solutions, where he was technical applications manager focusing on the industrial and retail markets.

Kerry Dodd, Cornelius business manager for health & nutrition, said Barnfield joined the business with a wealth of bakery experience in sales and technical roles acquired during his time with CSM UK, Warburtons and British Bakels.

“His knowledge of the baking industry will be integral to the growth of the Cornelius’ health and nutrition business, assisting us to develop our presence in the market and adding further value to our key principals and customers,” said Dodd.

Barnfield began his career as a test baker at RHM Research & Engineering, before moving into sales at a number of food ingredient research, development and manufacturing companies.

In October, Cornelius teamed up with New Holland Extraction to continue its development within Europe.
