    Fairfields Farm Crisps plans for growth with two new hires

    Fast-growing UK crisp producer, Fairfields Farm, is pleased to announce the appointment of David Nairn as the company’s new Non-Executive Director. Having formerly served as Managing Director of Burts Snacks, David brings a wealth of knowledge and will be supporting the executive team. Nairn’s appointment aligns with Fairfields Farm’s growth ambitions, which saw business turnover grow by 56 per cent between 2022 and 2023.

    “I have been working in the snack category for a long time and certainly admired Fairfields Farm from afar,” said Nairn. “It’s a good, solid business with an exciting strategy and strong core values, so I feel extremely privileged to be joining the team. I very much look forward to helping the business reach new heights.”

    Elsewhere in the business, Tash Jones will be joining the board having been promoted from Head of Marketing & NPD to Commercial Director. In her new role, Tash will oversee the sales and marketing strategy.

    With previous experience at Kettle Chips, Tash first joined the Fairfields Farm team in April 2021. “I’ve been a fan of the brand and business for the longest time, so it’s an absolute honour to be given the opportunity to lead a talented sales and marketing team and continue our work of providing a fantastic service to our customers. I’m so proud of how far the brand has come and look forward to helping drive Fairfields Farm forward,” said Tash.

    Co-founder, Robert Strathern, added: “I’d like to welcome David to the team, and I’m confident that his considerable experience and expertise in the fast-growing snacks business will help us to achieve our growth goals here at Fairfields Farm.

    “I equally would like to congratulate Tash on her new appointment as Commercial Director. The board has big upcoming ideas and plans, and Tash has already proven herself to be an asset. She will certainly play a key role in helping us to develop the business, particularly at a time when we are accelerating at such a rapid pace.”
