Melissa wildlife walksMelissa Abbott has been appointed National Vice Chairman of the Brewing, Food & Beverage Industry supplier’s association (BFBi), the first time this role has been held by a woman. This is a two-year appointment and after this period usually leads to the position of Chairman.  Not only is this a success for ‘girl power’ but Melissa is also one of the youngest people ever to have held this post.

The BFBi is an historic association, founded in 1907 and known then as the Allied Brewery Traders Association.

It has a rich history of achievements for its members representing the food brewing and beverage industry at Governmental level.

Melissa commented: “The BFBi brings together representatives from across the industry offering an opportunity for face to face discussions.  The trade days and social events such as cricket matches, charity cycle runs and quizzes are informative and fun and present ideal opportunities for networking amongst peers within our industry.”  She continued: “My hope is that I can bring some youthful energy and drive to the association to ensure that it continues to bring benefits to our members and the community at large.”

In addition to the BFBi appointment, Melissa has also recently been made a Trustee of the Essex and Suffolk Rivers Trust.  This appointment sits comfortably with her work at Muntons, where she is involved in environmental and sustainability initiatives throughout the supply chain.  Last year she helped to create a series of wildlife walks within Muntons 45 acre Stowmarket site through which runs the River Gipping – walks much enjoyed by Muntons staff during their breaks.
