Joe heads a team of two new recruits who joined UK Flour Millers in October, including Environment and Sustainability Manager, Ariane Derimay and Technical and Regulatory Affairs Officer, Paula Papa.

Liliane has a BA in international studies from the College of Charleston and a MBA and MA in advertising and public relations from Richmond American University London.
“Our strengthened team is set to support our members and address the challenges of the future in an industry that is part of the backbone of UK food security.
