SK People – John Parker

Mention Christmas to anyone in February and you would get a funny look, but at this time of year John Parker is already full of festive spirit.

That’s because in his role as a Commercial Manager at SK Chilled Foods, he is already planning for Christmas 2018.

This month, for instance, he has already met his supermarket customers to discuss the products they are likely to be supplying at Christmas.

SK People – Paul Dales

When you have ‘High Risk’ in your job title, you know what you do has to be taken seriously.

And as a High Risk Supervisor working at our South Bank site, that’s exactly what Paul Dales does.

Paul’s role is to ensure that all the correct procedures are being followed in relation to food safety and hygiene. And when you consider how much food we produce and how many millions of people eat it across the UK, then, yes, high risk is definitely the correct name for his job.

Chris Collins

SK People – Chris Collins

If there’s anything you need to know about an onion bhaji, Chris Collins is your man.

That’s because as part of his role as a Team Leader on the production line at our South Bank site, he is responsible for ensuring the bhaji lines run smoothly.

When you consider we produce 200,000 bhajis a day, you will understand why his role is so important.
He’s become so knowledgeable that if you lined up all the bhajis we do for our supermarket customers, based on the look, taste and smell, he would be able to tell you exactly which bhaji is sold in which supermarket.

Abbie Crawford – SK People

It’s just as well Abbie Crawford has a mobile phone with a very large memory.

Whilst most people are taking pictures of their friends, family and pets, Abbie uses hers to take pictures of food – a lot of pictures in fact.

It’s not that surprising given her role as a New Product Development (NPD) Manager.

Benna Davis

Benna Davis – SK people

If she was a Star Wars character, Benna Davis would be Yoda.

That’s because she admits she talks so fast that her words can sometimes come out sounding like Yoda, but also because her role is so busy she feels she needs to use Jedi mind tricks to get everything done.

Benna is our Head of Development, which ultimately means she is responsible for all the amazing food which comes out of the SK kitchen and finds its way onto supermarket shelves.

Peter Simpson

Peter Simpson – SK people

Peter Simpson sees a lot of brown boxes in his working week.

Thousands in fact and whilst he jokes that ‘a brown box is a brown box’ he knows that what is in these boxes is critical to SK Chilled Foods’ business.

Peter is our Supply Chain Controller, he has the power to move boxes, and many other things, with a single stare. Ok, so we are exaggerating a little, he does also use a phone and a computer, as well as a well oiled, 30-strong team.
