Meet the Team

The team at Uin Foods are passionate about their roles and the delicious food we make! They
understand the important part they play in the success of our business and the relationships we
build with our customers and suppliers.

I have been with the Uin team for over 10 years and in that time, we have seen many changes with
continual investment in the business. We have extended the factory replacing all the Pizza Topping
lines and in 2018 opened our new state of the art Bakery. Investment doesn’t stop at equipment,
we invest in our team to allow everyone to grow with individual training plans.


My role is to make sure we maintain strong relationships with our customers, building our future
business together.

My role within the Uin team is to recruit new employees, retain staff, process Payroll and daily
management of the office – I always make sure there is plenty of Tea and Coffee! I have been with
the team for over 12 years now and whilst I love the routine I also like the fact that every day is
different. I know everyone on an individual basis and it is a pleasure to see people progress through
their careers.


As a business we look towards the future and the technological advances it will bring. We aim to
work smarter, reduce waste and move to more automated ways of working. It is important that we
upscale employees and ensure high food standards are understood. We will be looking to enhance
our relationships with schools, colleges and universities in order to encourage leavers into the food
industry.

It is my responsibility to ensure we maintain the levels of food safety and legality of our products,
expected by our customers. My team makes sure the product inside is what it says on the label! We
are also part of the product development team and are responsible for creating the product
specifications.


I have been with Uin for over 7 years, but I have been in the food industry since 1990 first working
for Leatherhead Food Research as a Microbiologist.


We have a great team here at Uin, which is strongly supported by Castleview. Our customers are
fantastic and we strive to always keep them happy.


Our greatest achievements have to be our continuous drive for improvement – our scores on
unannounced audits have continually improved, and the development of a children’s pizza
containing 1 of your 5 a day.


Our recent expansion and build of a brand-new bakery with state-of-the-art technology presents
exciting times for the team at Uin.

 

 

Brian_Dempsey


I am fairly new to the team at Uin but have over 15 years’ experience in the food industry. It was the
exciting times ahead for Uin that drew me to the company. The expansion of the new bakery and
equipment means great opportunities to grow and develop our people and products. We have so
many opportunities to create new innovation – we continuously strive to be better than yesterday.
People drive productivity – my mission is to help the team feel motivated and enthusiastic to ensure
we get the best out of our people and plant.

I have been with Uin for over 12 years and have moved up from Engineering to Supervisor to
Engineering Manager. It is my responsibility to ensure that the plant is kept running, maximum
efficiency and ensure all maintenance is conducted to a high standard.


At Uin it is a fast-paced environment which keeps me on my toes, and I love that each day is so
varied.


Our engineering team is small and a great group of people who are pro-active and who all work
together well.


I was very fortunate to have been part of the new bakery build, taking it from conception to finish –
deciding the layout, choosing the kit, organising and liaising with the contractors during installation,
it was a great experience and I look forward to the future it will bring for Uin.
