Paul Dempsey
Senior Product Developer
Co-op

After spending 12 years at 4 and 5* hotels and 2-3 AA Rosette restaurants as a chef of various levels, and after receiving the honour of an invitation to cook for HM The Queen, I moved into manufacturing as a Product Development Chef, developing desserts and bakery lines for a number of retailers and foodservice operators both in the UK and abroad.

I moved to Co-op in 2012 to work as part of the development team supporting the business transformation into the retailer it is today, firstly as a Product Developer, then as a Senior Product Developer managing teams across multiple categories. I am proud to have won a number of Grocer Own Label awards in bakery and chilled categories both for Co-op and other retailers.
