In essence, her role is to drive the quality and innovation agendas, and protect and enhance the reputation of Sainsbury’s brand.

"Prior to Sainsbury’s, Judith held a similar role at Safeway, and spent twelve years in the Food Division at Marks & Spencer, most latterly driving their health and well-being strategy. Prior to this, she worked in manufacturing for Mars and Bass.

"In addition to her work at Sainsbury’s, Judith sits on the Board of Trustees for The Marine Stewardship Council, Farm Africa and GroceryAid. She is a member of the Institute of Food Science and Technology (IFST), a fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, and an ambassador for the Woodland Trust.
