About the trainer:
I founded Produco in 2016, as I saw the need for food safety leadership and regulatory guidance in the Dairy and Food industries. Four years on, Produco employs 10 staff and contractors throughout New Zealand and an office in Melbourne, Australia.
I gained extensive experience across New Zealand’s regulatory environment including NZ Standards Development, Regulatory Interpretation, Market Access, and Official Assurance Specification Implementation through my previous roles working for New Zealand’s leading dairy companies.
Raised on a dairy farm which ran sheep and beef, gave me a good grounding of on-farm practices. I studied Science at Waikato University and was fortunate to work at MilkTest NZ, and then landed my first role at Tatua Cooperative Dairy Company in the Microbiology and Functional foods laboratory. This was followed by time in the Chemistry laboratory, which prepared me well for future roles in all aspects of Quality and Regulatory Compliance from cow to customer for Dairy/Food and FMCG.
I’m passionate about developing great teams and growing people by finding opportunities to expand their careers. I also relish the challenge of creating sustainable quality management solutions to ensure compliance while adding value and implementing opportunities to continually improve.
