Supply Chain Project Manager
Eileen is our Supply Chain Project Manager, a role which can vary from finding new sources of Liquorice, to planning packaging for teas. Previously, Eileen took responsibility for our relationships with suppliers, travelling to Egypt, Bulgaria, Spain and Hungary. Her experience with meeting suppliers informs her current work, shaping the links in the chain that connect growers to brands and beyond. Eileen also manages our ethical certifications.
Before coming to Organic Herb Trading, Eileen worked at the Fairtrade Foundation in London, and in Paraguay at a co-operative of organic and Fairtrade sugar cane farmers. It was a spell wwoofing on a vegetable farm in Sussex which sparked her interest in organic, and a role at the Somerset Wildlife Trust that convinced her to settle back in the west country.
