Our Background

Fiona started her journey in the Food industry back in 2002, joining a cooked, chilled, meat company gaining experience in Low-risk and High-risk environments. She embraced the opportunity to learn at the sharp end about food safety, quality, legality and of course the ever-increasing demands of the Retailers. There were many valuable moments. including being part of the team who designed and built a new factory, leading, supporting, and coaching a great team and successfully winning and keeping new Retail business.


In 2008, Fiona left to move to a Low Care ambient Chocolate Confectionery business; the main driver being the opportunity to learn more about Ambient manufacturing environments, gain exposure to additional Retailers and understand a range of different processes; an agenda which was realised quickly.


In 2011, Fiona joined The Silver Spoon Company, part of Associated British Foods (ABF), in a new Group role to the business. The objective was to support five manufacturing sites to raise factory standards and prepare to produce Retailer own branded products. Each site already had great people in their Technical and Operations’ teams; most of whom are still in employ, the business just needed some help with identifying specific Retailer requirements and helping the Site teams to comply with them. The wider remit was to achieve excellent External audit results, develop and nurture relationships with Customers and key stakeholders and constantly look for new ways of enhancing and improving the food safety management systems. Over the years, Fiona’s roles in the business also included Safety, Health and Environmental Management but Food Safety is where her heart is and at the time of leaving the business in 2020, she was Group Head of Food Safety & Quality.


In April 2020 and at the beginning of the Global pandemic, Fiona embarked upon a different journey, joining a widely respected team auditing Suppliers on behalf of a “High-end” Retailer. This role has given Fiona the opportunity to meet many different food manufacturers, learn about lots of different products and processes and build relationships with new teams.

In September 2022, Fiona decided to make her next career move and formed Quality-Squared Ltd; the aim being to provide practical support and expertise to Food Manufacturing businesses to enable them to achieve high standards and produce  safe, quality food and ingredients.
