What does a typical day look like for you?
No two days are the same, most morning involve consolidation of orders. First load in the morning is to coffee shops/restaurants for milk, cream and cheese. Second dispatches are to delis, retail customers and any international sales. While also getting production started, working off our production schedule. I deal with all technical and administration tasks mostly in the mid part of the day. I would liaise with customers dealing with any order or queries arising. Late afternoon, I consolidate our doorstep milk delivery business, planning routes for drivers etc.
Why did you join the Society of Dairy Technology?
A big part of it was to educate myself, the society provide an enormous amount of access to resource information such as: articles, papers and books written by experts in dairy science and technology field.
What benefits do you find being part of the Society?
For me, creating professional relationships is important, and joining the society has allowed me to have a sense of security and trust. From this, you can support and help one another in reaching your professional goals. The events are fantastic throughout the year and allow you to connect with your peers. Particularly good networking platform.
Would you recommend joining the Society to anyone else starting out on their career in the dairy sector?
Absolutely, So, whether you are looking to network in your professional community, gain access to current events in your career area, or just have some fun while meeting new people, joining the Society is a step in the right direction!
