Food Hawke's Bay Appointment

30 April 2014

Media Release - for immediate use

The Food Hawke’s Bay Board is pleased to announce the appointment of Patricia Small as the new Manager for Food Hawke’s Bay.

Patricia brings to Food Hawke’s Bay a wealth of expertise from both the food industry and the not-for-profit sector. Eleven years as a fund raiser in the not-for-profit sector, both in New Zealand and in the United Kingdom, has given her experience not only in raising funds, but an understanding of how boards and committees function. Event management at a local level, some of which attracted national news coverage (in the UK), was also a major part of her work.

Patricia returned to New Zealand in 1995, after a twenty-year ‘overseas experience’ in the UK. Together with her husband they purchased a small food manufacturing company in Christchurch. This was a hands-on roll requiring Patricia to implement a food safety (HACCAP) programme, manage staff, market products, and general management of the company. Patricia said “this was a real learning curve, which has given me a valuable understanding of the challenges and pitfalls of running a small food manufacturing company”.

After moving to Hawke’s Bay Patricia held national sales and marketing positions with Rush Munro’s and Country Culinaire. She also ran her own food consultancy business for a period of time, assisting local companies to establish and grow their market share.

Patricia is looking forward to working with Food Hawke’s Bay and is confident that her enthusiasm and business experience will assist members in the development and promotion of their businesses.

Patricia’s start date will be Monday 26th May.

The board and the team at Food Hawke’s Bay welcomes Patricia to the organisation and look forward to working to deliver the best service we can to all our members.
