Frozen food specialist Ardo UK has appointed William Burton as its new sales and marketing director.
Burton has worked in the industry for 20 years, including roles at Campofrio Food Group, Smithfield Foods and Sara Lee Corp and now says he is looking forward to working with the Ardo teams in Ashford, Kent, and Eye, Suffolk, to liaise with the group’s diverse range of clients, from retailers and food service through to wholesale and food ingredients customers.
He told Wholesale News this week: “I was drawn to Ardo UK both for its position as a Kent business with historic roots in the area and for its strong European ties and position within the wider Ardo group. Ardo UK has a wide portfolio of high quality frozen fruit and vegetable products and continually invests in its Features > Business, people and sustainability. This, combined with the diverse customer base, made it a company I was determined to work for.”
Stephen Waugh, managing director of Ardo UK, said: “William is a welcome addition to the team. His experience and enthusiasm are the perfect recipe for an Ardo UK employee.”
