Damian Sutherland
Damian SutherlandProcurement
Damian oversees the sourcing and buying of products across the globe. He buys all of Topfruit (apples and pears) and citrus. We also have four other team members based in our head office who procure a variety of different products. The teams in South Africa, Chile, Argentina, India and Greece procure on ground.

This entails working with existing suppliers/growers and finding new ones to develop a bigger supply base so we can offer to more customers. Our role is to buy the right quality at the fairest price and have a supply base that is broad enough to spread the risk in case of weather that damages production.
