In recent years Trudi has moved into the SME business area to utilise her strong FMCG (fast moving consumer goods) background and skills to develop both UK and overseas business across numerous channels.

Trudi said: “Julianne Ponan, the CEO of Creative Nature, is inspirational not only in developing such a great brand and range in Creative Nature but also her dedication in supporting and speaking on behalf of food allergy and intolerance sufferers across the UK.

“I had already come across her brand in a previous role and I am excited to join the team so we can continue in her journey to create and develop some fantastic partnerships with our customers and consumers both in the UK and across the world. 

“For many consumers access to Top 14 Allergen Free foods is a dietary need and not a lifestyle choice.”
