Since taking on his new role, Mr Allan has already overseen the opening of the company’s new regional office, based in Bristol. It has a significant client base in the area, including Burges Salmon, ONS and Nationwide.

He said: “The South West and Wales is a strong growth area and we have some fantastic clients here. My role is to nurture these relationships and set us up for the next stage in our growth across this thriving region.
“Contract catering has moved on so much since I joined the industry and it is now recognised that businesses like BaxterStorey take pride in providing their clients with high quality, fresh, local and seasonal ingredients.”
