Remembering Jeffrey Hyman

Jeffrey Hyman sadly died last week

Jeffrey, a much loved and well respected figure within the food industry, was the founder and chairman of the Food & Drink Innovation Network. Our organisation has lost a man who was not just an industry innovator, but also a truly inspiring character with an almost encyclopaedic knowledge of the industry he so loved. His warmth and personal magnetism made him easy to connect with; many people across the UK food industry regarded Jeffrey as a friend. We know that many people will also deeply feel our loss.

Jeffrey will be remembered for his many distinctions including founding Pret A Manger, and as Director of Innovation for RHM Group now Premier Foods. There he worked on many household names including; Sharwoods, Mr Kipling, Hovis, Robertson’s, Bisto and many other famous RHM brands. He loved nothing more than coaxing major food brands into more innovative and progressive thinking.

He leaves behind a company that all of us here are proud to be a part of, and in his spirit we will continue the work he started nearly 14 years ago.
