    Product developer

    Product developer

    Director of Product Development, April Preston, has over 30 years of experience in retail, manufacturing and the restaurant industry. Brought up on a farm in Devon, April’s passion for food began during childhood where her parent’s enthusiasm for food and cooking was an enormous source of inspiration. Growing their own vegetables, rearing meat and collecting milk straight from the cow, gave April a thirst for food knowledge and quality standards that have never wavered. April has gone on to work for the UK’s largest food manufacturer and served as the Executive Head of Food Innovation at Harrods. She spent 18 years as a product developer for Marks and Spencer, before leaving the company in 2013, to return as the director in 2018 which remains her role at present. This depth of industry experience makes April a specialist in innovation, concept development, brand creation, consumer insight, food production, and product and customer strategy.

Stay in your lane

When you have a guest chef on to discuss thrir cooking and background, maybe allow them to answer the listener questions before the chef with no knowledge whitesplains everything and gets it wrong.

Great with Tom and Orlando

Great with Tom and Orlando, hopefully they’ll be back at some point. Not so great with the mostly Millennials harping on about first world problems. It’s just so painful.
