Lee Bladon – Food Industry Technical Consultant

My name is Lee Bladon and I am a highly experienced technical consultant who provides specialist short-term technical support to the food manufacturing industry.

I have a first class honours degree in Food Quality Management and Postgraduate Certificates in HACCP and Coaching. I also have over 20 years experience and a proven track record as a technical consultant and interim manager in the food industry.

I am experienced in almost every aspect of the food industry from Specifications Technologist to Technical Manager to Operations Manager. But I specialise in technical support, including HACCP, allergen management, quality management systems, food safety, compliance, BRC auditing, technical services, retailer specification writing and consultancy.

I have worked as a technical consultant providing technical support for a diverse range of food manufacturers and have experience of many different sectors and food groups including: ready meals, pizzas, sandwiches, salads, fresh cream cakes, meat, seafood, dairy, bakery, snacks, sauces, ingredients, ready-to-eat, ambient, chilled and frozen.

My Clients include: 2 Sisters, Humdinger, Bakkavor, Greencore, Hain Daniels, Premier, Vion, Froneri, Cumbrian Seafoods, Primebake, Uniq, Vale of Mowbray, Pro-Pak and Merck. Many of the above were repeat clients.

Food Industry Technical Consultant

I am sensibly overqualified for many of the assignments I undertake, which allows me to “hit the ground running” and deliver the specialist technical support that you need. I enjoy the variety, challenge and focus that short-term assignments offer, which helps me be more productive than most permanent employees.

I am a hands-on consultant with a pro-active, solution-focused approach. I am also a natural trainer, coach and mentor who likes to bring out the best in others and develop their abilities. I provide short-term technical support to your existing team during intense periods of change, growth or recovery from a poor audit. I can also review, advise or improve your in-house systems to bring them up to the latest BRC standard or retailer guidelines.
