New NPD & Marketing Technologist appointment at Dalziel Ingredients

Dalziel Ingredients has further expanded its NPD team with the appointment of Mary Niven as NPD & Marketing Technologist.

Mary joins the UK’s bespoke seasoning blends, cures and functional blends specialist having worked in NPD, marketing and sales roles in the food industry, most recently at The Original Baker.

She graduated in 2016 from Newcastle University with a degree in Food Marketing and Nutrition.

Mary’s new role sees her focus on new flavour concepts and helping brands tap into the next big food trends.

She said: “Dalziel Ingredients is known for its blue-sky innovation, keeping up with trends and exploring new ingredients. I can’t wait to get involved with each of these aspects of the job.

“And I’m looking forward to driving the social media side of the business to broaden our message to customers and suppliers.”

Her appointment takes Dalziel’s NPD team to 22 staff, advising food manufacturers across the world on flavour trends, market analysis, factory processes, recipe formulations and product quality enhancements.

At its state-of-the-art factory and new product development centre in Gateshead, Dalziel Ingredients manufactures a wide range of bespoke dry blends – seasonings, complete mixes, rubs, glazes, functional blends, batters, flavoured crumbs, snack seasonings, cures and brines for any meat, savoury, sweet, vegetarian or vegan product.  Its products are available as gluten free, halal, kosher and organic.
