Warrenpoint woman makes final of Kraft Foods Leading Light Award
A Warrenpoint woman is celebrating this week after it emerged that she has been chosen as a finalist in the Kraft Foods Leading Light awards.
Mike Darby, skills and employment manager at IGD said;
“This is the sixth Leading Light Award and every year the entries just get better and better. From new start-ups to people working for some of the biggest brands and retailers in the industry, our candidates showcased achievement that they felt had made a real difference – not just to themselves but to the wider food and grocery industry.”
When faced with the closure of her juice bar outlet, Jacquelyn extended the shelf life of her 100% natural wheat-grass juices from two hours to three weeks, by working with the Agri-Food and Bioscience Institute in Belfast and has made the move to retailing juices online.
This has considerably expanded her customer base, with the company now selling over 500 shots a week and exporting to USA and Spain.
The Kraft Foods Leading Light Award winner will be announced at the IGD Food Industry Awards on Tuesday 9th October and will receive a prize of £2,000 and a trophy.
