Marion MacPhee

Marion MacPhee

Director

I have spent most of my working life in food manufacturing around the UK (a brief stint as a stockbroker aside!) from custard creams to sausage rolls. I have worked for Greggs for 15 years, where I am responsible for running the bakery in Edinburgh and a small pickle factory in Kelso. I have been a volunteer panel member with the Children’s Hearing system for 10 years, I live in Glasgow and any spare time should probably be spent in the gym, but in fact is spent in the kitchen and looking after my young daughter!
