Leading clean label ingredients supplier Ulrick & Short has added to its team of technical specialists with the appointment of Jon Arzberger. Jon qualified as a food scientist and has since amassed over a decade of premium experience in the food manufacturing and distribution sector.
Jon joins Ulrick & Short in the role of business development, and has particular specialisms in bakery, sauces and savouries. Previously responsible for research and new product development at a leading food manufacturing group, Jon has significant experience in kitchens—which stood him in good stead when preparing test recipes as part of his induction. Ulrick & Short prides itself on ensuring that all employees have a broad hands-on knowledge of its products.
Prior experience with health foods and ingredients will ease Jon’s transition into the role of promoting Ulrick & Short’s extensive range of clean label non-GM starches, proteins, fibres and flours to food technologists and product developers across the food manufacturing sector in the UK and worldwide.
Jon’s CV features a number of household name products. Ulrick & Short director Adrian Short explained: “I would be amazed if anyone could open their kitchen cupboards and not find at least one of the brands with which Jon has previously worked. We are very pleased to have Jon on board as his experience and technical skillset will perfectly enhance our existing team of hard working and talented professionals.”
Jon added: “Ulrick & Short is very well known as a leading British starch specialist and I’ve been aware of the company and its ingredients for some time now. It has such an excellent reputation in the industry that I could not wait to be part of the team.”
