|Dan has been involved with the business right from its start when Dan helped Martin on the market stall. He is our chief market operative and loves nothing more than standing on Salisbury Charter Market in the pouring rain! He is also our resident geek and can do anything you could ever wish for with a computer! He has created all of our IT systems and his proudest achievement is this fab website. If you have any technical issues with our site, he's your man and you can contact him directly here at firstname.lastname@example.org When not at work he loves nothing more than relaxing with his family at home, walking his gorgeous Dalmatian Poppy, or tucking into his favourite snack, Gathia Sticks! He's also rather partial to Belgian Chocolate Brazils, but only after a burn up on his fat bike across the New Forest.|
|Sol joined the business after graduating from the University of Wales, Aberystwyth in 1998 with a degree in French and Italian. Since then, he has taken over the general running of the business and does all the buying and sourcing of products for the company. With his love of languages (or is that an ability to talk the hind legs of a donkey?!) he loves chatting with and looking after our trade customers, so if you have any sort of trade or sales enquiry please feel free to contact him here: email@example.com. When not at the coal face, Sol loves being with his wife and 3 kids, or on one of his many bikes! In fact he is often to be found peddling his way around the Salisbury area whilst chomping on a homemade flapjack made with Jumbo oats, Chia Seeds and almonds. You can follow Sol's biking adventures by following him on Instgram under his moniker, poweredbynuts|
Nic, Sol's wife, has been an amazing addition to our team since Martin's retirement in 2009. As a qualified Chartered Accountant, she looks after all financial and admin aspects of the business and you can contact her on firstname.lastname@example.org. Nic also runs her own accounting service helping small companies with their payroll and accounts. She delights in keeping a tight reign on both the Rimer boys at work, but at home she loves spending time with Sol and their three children. When not ferrying the kids about, taking them to sports clubs, swimming, parties or gymnastics, she can be found pounding the city streets in her running gear. When Nic does get a few moments to herself, she loves shopping for clothes, drinking white wine and reading interior magazines!
With her experience and background working in the food industry, Caroline is our hygiene, food safety and Health & Safety expert. Her career thus far has involved helping food companies achieve BRC and ISO standard accreditation, so we know our company is in safe hands with her on board! She also carries out all our staff training and ongoing self audits. When not walking around the factory with her clipboard, Caroline loves spending time with her three girls and husband, baking the most delicious home made cakes!
Aaron and Malcolm are the engine room of the nut factory! Together they pick, pack, unload, organise, store, deliver, mix and supervise the production process and logistics for the business. In his role as Packaging Manager, Aaron has undergone thorough training enabling him to run the packing room like a well oiled machine! He also manages our production schedule and is always on hand to to keep the packing lines topped up and ready to pack! Malcolm is the master of the warehouse. With his specialist training in warehouse management, he makes sure every order is picked and shipped and the warehouse kept stocked up and products ready for despatch. He also heads our team of friendly delivery staff, so odds on if you get a delivery from us to your shop, you'll be greeted by Malc's smiling face!
Bethany, Jackie, Hazel, Sue, Sharon and Tracey are our ever dependable packing room staff. Together they have over 30 years service with us and are all invaluable to our business. Hazel and Sue run one of our semi automatic production lines, packing all our delicious dried fruit. Whilst standing at her station, Hazel (our longest serving employee) loves nothing more than bossing about Dan and Sol, singing along to her favourite tunes or simply dreaming about her next holiday to America! Sharon works on one of our fully automated lines and has been with us for over 8 years. She packs most of our pulses, grains and oats, but as long as the music's on and she can finish work in time to look after her horses she's happy! Tracey, Hazel's daughter, is our hand packing expert. Since joining us, she has become our cherry queen and is never happier than facing a mountain of glace fruit to pack! Bethany, Jackie's daughter, works next to Sharon operating a fully automated packing line, adding her dash of style and panache to all proceedings! Jackie is our very own spice girl, packing all of our spices into tubs and packets. Her hard work really lets you spice up your life!
Our market dream team includes Dan, Louise, Liam and Tom. You can find the core team of Louise and Tom on the market every Tuesday and Saturday. Louise has been with us for over 12 years and when she's not serving the customers on the stall in Salisbury, you'll also see her doing her weekly delivery run either to the North of Wiltshire or along the South Coast. When not at work, Lou's one true love (apart from him indoors) is her motorbike, and there's nothing she likes more than a Sunday ride out with her biker friends! Tom recently graduated from University with a degree in French and Spanish, very handy when chatting to the many tourists who visit Salisbury! Lou and Tom are joined by Liam on Saturdays. Liam is studying to be a paramedic at Bournemouth University so if you keep an eye out you might spot him zooming around in an ambulance through Salisbury! Thanks to taking on new staff, Dan now enjoys spending most of his Saturdays at home, but don’t worry, you’ll still be able to catch him at the market helping to pack up, or covering for absent staff! His knowledge of our products is second to none, so take the opportunity to chat to him if you spot him.
