BMPA welcomes Anna Proffit to the team

Anna Proffitt joins the British Meat Processors Association on Monday 1st April as Policy Technical Manager. Having graduated with a BSc 1st class Honours in Food and Consumer Studies from Harper Adams University Food she went on to gain experience at ASDA’s head office working with its Food Safety team on retail operations and compliance.

She moves to BMPA from her current role at Flamingo Horticulture where she has been managing the Cooperative and Nisa accounts as part of the Graduate Leadership Scheme.

Nick Allen, CEO of BMPA said: “We’re very much looking forward to welcoming Anna into the new BMPA team. She already has experience in the food retail environment but, just as important is the energy and drive she brings to the position.

“We look forward to introducing her to all our members and partners over the coming months”.

An example of how some journalists/activists work. Anna quotes George Monbiot as saying: 'It’s an idealised position. I know we won’t get things to change as far as that...I then make it easier for others to find the political space in which change can take place'. Common ground?

The speakers at #RethinkForum all have a desire to find solutions to the climate crisis that won’t have unintended consequences worse than the original problem. It’s important that the full scientific picture is presented. https://rethinkforums.org/
