Critical compliance appointment announced at The Fruitery
Chambers has announced the appointment of Kate Boxall as Compliance and Health and Safety Manager for The Fruitery.
Kate Boxall has been announced as The Fruitery’s Compliance and Health and Safety Manager, a newly-created position at Chambers’ recently-launched prepared fruit division.
Kate joined the business in April 2019 and has an established track record in quality control and compliance for the fresh produce sector. She previously spent two years as a Compliance Manager at Fruition Packing and 18 months in a quality control role for Berry Gardens.
A former student at Hadlow, where she completed a Certificate in Food Industry Skills apprenticeship course while working in industry, Kate comes from a fruit farming family. Since finishing her apprenticeship, Kate has also completed her Level 2 HACCP for Food Manufacturing and Level 3 Supervising Health and Safety in the Workplace.
The new position at The Fruitery will see Kate use her skills to ensure the business stays on track in terms of the myriad health and safety protocols associated with a prepared fruit site.
“The high care facility at The Fruitery represents a £2 million investment and The Fruitery is committed to providing a seamless supply of quality prepared fruit year-round,” she said, “therefore this job is pivotal to the continued success of the business. Our customers – multiples and foodservice outlets – demand the very highest standards in terms of the quality and traceability of the product supplied and we need to be confident in our ability to not just meet but exceed these expectations by having in place the tightest compliance control measures across all critical points of our operations.”
Kate will report into Chambers Group Technical Director Rupert Carter and The Fruitery’s Operation Manager Andrée King.
