Barbara Bray MBE
Barbara Bray has 20 years’ experience working in the agri-food sector in the UK and Europe, Middle East and African countries. Her career has covered fresh produce procurement and the provision of food safety advice and nutritional compliance information as Technical Manager with Bakkavor, an international food manufacturer. She regularly chairs meetings on nutrition and speaks at events on the subject of food production and nutrition.
In 2017, Barbara was awarded a Nuffield Farming Scholarship and her project on ‘Vegetable Production For Specific Nutritional Need’ reviewed biofortification initiatives and food policies in countries including China, South Korea, Australia and New Zealand. Her findings have inspired her to create solutions to encourage different parts of the food chain to collaborate and communicate more effectively with each other.
Barbara was awarded an MBE in the 2019 Birthday Honours list for ‘Services to Food Nutrition’.
