Ben White: Sales Director
Ben joined the family business in 2004 a couple of years after graduating from University, and after gaining valuable customer facing experience as a field sales manager for an international bike manufacturer.Alongside his parents, Ben oversaw the Bakery move in 2006 from Westend Farm to the larger current site at Tolldown to meet the growing demand from customers.
Today he is involved in a number of aspects of the business. As Sales Director he focuses much of his time liaising with our customers, working with the product development team and ensuring exciting new market channels are developed. He also works very closely with fellow director Chris Smith as they take the business forward.
Ben can always be seen at a number of business networking and social events across the south west, telling all those that will listen just how great our products are!
In his free time, Ben enjoys good food and wine, and watching any sport on TV. He is also heavily involved with Marshfield Cricket Club as its secretary. (The bakery is proud to be their shirt sponsor!)
