Ingredients supplier Edme has named Metin Fevzi as managing director.

Fevzi joined the business as operations and technical director in April 2017 and oversaw production of the company’s flour and flakes.

Edme said his experience in managing operations for manufacturers such as Arla Foods, Greencore and Premier Foods, would serve him well in his new role.

“During the past nine months Metin has shown himself to be a first-class operator – and capable of taking on a wider role in the business,” said Edme CEO David Thompson. “He has introduced stringent controls, ensuring quality, health and safety are treated as paramount throughout the business.”

Fevzi will now focus on increasing capacity for Edme and tap the increasing health and free-from markets to provide opportunities for the business.

“I am really fortunate to have come into a company that has a great workforce, fantastic products and huge technical expertise,” said Fevzi. “The company’s signature malted flours and flakes play an important role in opening doors with new customers. Equally as important are our innovative and own-originated sprouted grains.”
