Award-winning Devon-based winery, Lyme Bay Winery, has announced the appointment of new quality manager, Jimmy Lewis, who will bring a wealth of industry experience to the growing team. This new role caps off an eventful month for Jimmy, having just received the prestigious ‘Member of the Month’ award from the International Food Safety & Quality Network, the world’s leading networking and information website for food safety practitioners.
Jimmy’s appointment comes as further demonstration of Lyme Bay’s continuing commitment to quality standards, following the news of last month’s BRC Global Standard certification, which is regarded as the highest benchmark for best practice, quality and safety in the industry. Achieved due to the winery’s pre-existing and ongoing drive to produce exceptional drinks to the highest quality and standards, Lyme Bay is currently the only English wine producer to hold this seal of approval.
Liam Idzikowski, head winemaker at Lyme Bay Winery, says;
“Bringing Jimmy aboard the Lyme Bay team has brought in a fresh and experienced pair of eyes to help us continue striving for better quality and higher standards. His vast technical experience in the large-scale food industry offers the company a new and rigorous approach to cider and winemaking that will support us in our ongoing mission to produce the very highest quality drinks.”
