I have worked as an agronomist for M&S for the past 6 years working with growers and suppliers to bring the latest innovation in fresh produce to the shelves for our customer. I have a PhD in Plant Molecular Biology and prior to working for M&S I was a university academic trying to understand how plants sense their environment and respond to it especially when vegetables are harvested. By understanding this we can design packaging that can slow down the process or find plants that ‘die’ more slowly. This has stood me in good stead when talking with other scientists that are breeding the latest generation of our veg and helps me to understand the latest technology that breeders are using to select new plants to eat.
