Macphie, the UK’s leading independent food ingredients manufacturer, has appointed a new Head of Operations.

Stuart Harrington joins the Aberdeenshire-based company from Diageo, where he held several roles, most recently as Distillery Manager of the Talisker Distillery on the Isle of Skye.

Originally from Speyside and a graduate of Heriot-Watt University, Stuart is relocating from Skye to the North-east of Scotland with his wife and three children and is looking forward to joining the team.

“Macphie has a great reputation and is achieving fantastic things,” he said.

“Having worked in a production environment for a number of years, I’m looking forward to a new challenge in the food industry.”

Operations Director Neil Freckingham said: “Stuart joins us at an exciting time, as the recent £2million investment into our equipment and technology positions us to build on our sustainable profitable growth.

“The operational experience and expertise that he brings to the company will be invaluable as we move forward with our ambitious plans for the future.”
