Mrs Crimble’s owner Wessanen has appointed Cristina Ramsay as technical and corporate social responsibility director.

Previously senior technical account manager at Allied Bakeries, Ramsay brings more than 20 years’ industry experience to the position, including prior roles with McCormick and the Leatherhead Food Research Association.

She will be responsible for supplier assurance and regulation of safety, legality and quality of Wessanen UK products – including items from gluten-free brand Mrs Crimble’s and Kallø, among others.

“Cristina has joined the business at a really important time, as we place a clear focus on our supply chain, our environmental outputs and our ethical credentials,” said Ann Chambers, HR director at Wessanen UK.

The firm appointed a new CEO in February.
