We have such a diverse range of products there has always been something new to learn about, somewhere new to travel to and perhaps most importantly new people to meet, this has meant the last 28 years have always been exciting, demanding and rewarding in equal measure.
I enjoy growing my own fruit and vegetables at home and cooking them along side this I work hard to maintain my position as Gloucestershire’s most idle bee keeper.
I joined E.E. & Brian Smith in 2016.
I enjoy my job as we deal with a wide range of ingredients from around the world and every month something different is in season which means my job never gets boring.
I regularly travel around the country and aboard visiting our customers and suppliers which I think is the best part of my job.
I love trying our customers products with our ingredients in and seeing them on the supermarket shelves.
Outside work I enjoy cooking and spending time with my friends and family.

The thing I love the most about working at E.E. & Brian Smith is the variety.
We work with such a diverse range of ingredients and wonderful suppliers, life at E.E. & Brian Smith is never dull!
When I’m not rabbiting on the phone about fruit, I am lucky enough to visit our top quality processors all around the world, learning about their capabilities.
Away from office, I am lucky enough to have a pear of lovely daughters, who are mischievous little pickles.
They are always up to various capers but am very grape-ful to have them in my life! They are the apple-of-my-eye…
I joined E.E. & Brian Smith in 1996 as an office administrator, I now work in the sales team as a Sales Manager assisting the directors and dealing with any new enquiries that come in.
I very much enjoy working at E.E. & Brian Smith as each day is never the same, we deal in a wide range of products, and we are a very tight knit team.
Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family.
I joined E.E. & Brian Smith in 2017 and have really enjoyed getting to know our wide range of customers and suppliers since, there’s always something new and interesting going on.
Having grown up on a farm I’ve always had a passion for food so when I’m not at work I enjoy trying new restaurants or getting creative in the kitchen
My career with E.E. & Brian Smith started as an ‘office junior’ at sweet seventeen, starting at the bottom and working my way up, learning all aspects of the business, deciding on my career path to my current position in charge of the shipping and logistics for the company.
I am the longest serving member of the company exceeding my former director who when he retired had served 31 years, mine currently being in my 37th year.
It still only seems like yesterday that I was young, free, single, opinionated, headstrong and with an emphasis that everything must be done right.
This is still the case today on how I work and lead my team and I was very pleased that just recently advised by this retired director that “he had chosen the right one”!
I am fortunate enough that my husband and children accept that E.E. & Brian Smith is part of my extended family and I even have sleepless nights / dreams with the “to do” list with things going around and around in my head for the next day solving problems and challenges that are set.
I am proud to have been a part of the making of what the company is today, honoured to serve and will continue watch and see it nurture further until I am unable.
I’m originally from Manchester, moved to Buckinghamshire 12 years ago and I started working at E.E. & Brian Smith in 2013.
I joined the company in a Sales Support role and then moved into Logistics.
E.E. & Brian Smith is a great place to work, each day is varied and the people who work here make the office an enjoyable place to be!
In my spare time I enjoy baking and experimenting with the fruit purees that we sell!
I’ve been fortunate enough to be a member of the team for just shy of 3 years, I’ve been promised parole but no news just yet.
We’re idyllically placed in the countryside and the wildlife and surrounding views are a photographers dream.
I love that we sell such a wide variety of products constantly expanding my knowledge. I’m a huge sports enthusiast, especially football and rugby.
