QMS Appoints Brands Integrity Manager

Quality Meat Scotland (QMS) has appointed Suzanne Woodman to the new senior management role of Brands Integrity Manager.

Originally from Castle Douglas, Miss Woodman lives in East Kilbride and has a French and Business Studies degree from Edinburgh University. In 2009 she graduated from Strathclyde University with an LLB Law degree and she also has a Postgraduate Diploma in European Marketing and Languages.  

During her career she has held management roles for small and medium sized companies and for the past six years worked at dairy co-operative First Milk where she most recently held the role of Milk and Ingredients Planning Manager.

Miss Woodman’s role with QMS will involve managing and operating QMS’ six assurance schemes as well as developing the brands licensing scheme.

Uel Morton, QMS Chief Executive, said the announcement of Ms Woodman’s appointment followed a review and restructure of the industry development team in order to create greater focus on strategically important activities.

“Suzanne boasts a solid business grounding, across a range of industries, and I am delighted to welcome her to the team,” said Mr Morton.

“QMS recently introduced the brands licencing scheme as an additional measure to further strengthen the checks already in place to protect the Scotch Beef, Scotch Lamb and Specially Selected Pork brands.

“Suzanne will play an instrumental role in working with farm assessors, secondary processors and other companies in the supply chain, to ensure the integrity of the Scotch brands.”
