Ellie Thirkettle
Senior Product Development Manager
Ocado

I have been working in Product Development for 8 years working in both manufacturing and retail. I understand how much time and effort that's put into developing new products, from researching trends all the way through to designing packaging, trialling recipes etc. Having spent 4 years working on a successful chefs retail brand I have learnt a huge amount about flavours, ingredients, recipes. In my current role I regularly test and judge supplier samples and have learnt the importance of objectivity.
