More than “Just Biscuits” !

If anyone were to say to my 18 year old self, that over the next 30 or so years, I would

  • fall in love with food technology and become a Fellow of the Institute of Food Science and Technology in the UK
  • move from Athens to London
  • marry and live happily ever after
  • have a wonderful daughter and a naughty dog
  • get a job in the biggest biscuit company in the UK, doing something I love
  • grow some of the most iconic brands like McVitie’s, Jacob’s, Jaffa Cakes, Penguin
  • have millions of people in the UK and around the world eat and enjoy products I have created
  • lead a fabulous team of over 100 dedicated and fantastically talented scientists
  • sit on three executive boards
  • become passionate about the power of good, sustainable and ethically sourced food to nourish our body, our soul and the planet
  • make so many friends
  • travel to exotic far away places
  • make even more friends
  • bring happiness through volunteering

and enjoy every minute of it, I would have said “I’ll have what you’re having!”

I now want to share what I have learnt and what has inspired me with those starting their career or their studies. I hope to inspire them to enter the magical world of food.

It may be “just biscuits” to some, but to me it is a wonderful life. Besides, can you imagine a world without them ?
