Merilyn Elson

Marketing Operations Manager

Merilyn's background is in the fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) industry, where she worked for a family owned food manufacturer for over 30 years. She started as the first R&D Manager for what was then a small bakery, and ended her time there as Senior Marketing Manager for what had become a highly successful bakery supplying both national and international channels. She was motivated by working in a team of passionate professionals towards a common goal and relished the challenges of growing a business in a constantly evolving market.

After reflecting on what drives her - family, community, the environment and the impact we are each having on the world - she jumped at the opportunity to work for a company that shares these values.

A passionate foodie, Merilyn is excited about bringing fresh, wholesome, affordable food to the world! She believes the provenance of food is becoming more important, and there is an appetite for consumers to know more about what goes into their food, where it is grown and who benefits when they purchase it.
