Freda's Statement

One of the core beliefs of our company is to provide safe and sustainable food for our customers. This is something I am passionate about and I, together with our senior management, are totally committed to. I believe that being part of globally credible certification organisations such as GLOBALG.A.P. is the best way for me to further that commitment while also striving to ensure better working conditions and improved lifestyles for all, especially those at farm level. I feel also that I can bring the perspective of a premium retailer to the board which is vital in order to understand the requirements and demands of customers who are the end consumers of the product. As I also work closely with suppliers from our global sourcing network, I have experience and knowledge from producer level also. Being in touch with their needs and expectations, as well as being in touch with and having knowledge of retail and customer needs, would, I
feel, bring a "full picture" perspective to the board and ultimately benefit the overall objectives of the Global Gap processes and standards.

Professional & Educational Background

I hold a B. Ed. (Hons) in Home Economics with a major in food studies and nutrition. Following a short teaching career I moved to retail as a Food Advisor for an Irish National Retailer. I then moved to Tesco Ireland where i worked for over 15 years in the areas of NPD with an emphasis on assisting local supplier to reach the standards required for Tesco Finest brand, Quality Control and Technical department. I also spent over 3 years as Press Officer in the Corporate Office where I worked in the areas
