This week is International Women's Day (March 8th 2023).
A global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women, and also marks a call to action for accelerating women's equality.
Part of the mission of IWD is to ‘forge inclusive work cultures where women's careers thrive and their achievements are celebrated’.
To support this mission this blog is dedicated to some of Manuka Doctor’s female staff who do an amazing job behind the scenes to help get your favourite products into your hands.
Let’s meet the team!
OUR NATURAL PRODUCT EXPERTS
Both Katie and Bridget are part of our UK Team in Hinckley, Leicestershire. They are experts in the art of Apple Cider Vinegar, where our products are carefully hand-made on-site using the finest Italian Unfiltered Organic Apples, and our own New Zealand Manuka honey.
Katie and Bridget work as a team to ensure that the products are correctly made, packed, and tested to ensure quality.
Manuka Doctor’s Apple Cider Vinegar comes in four different flavours, meaning the team also need to keep an eye on stock levels and ingredients needed to ensure enough is available for upcoming promotions and offers.
So next time you enjoy some Apple Cider Vinegar, you will know who created it for you!
OUR LOGISTICS EXPERT
As anyone who has taken in a large delivery knows, Manuka honey is heavy!
That’s why our warehouse team here in the UK use a lot of advanced racking and forklift trucks to help us manage our precious stock.
Laura is a valuable member of this UK Warehouse team with a very varied role.
As regular customers will know, all Manuka Doctor honey is packed in our New Zealand facility before being packed into a container and shipped across the world to us in the UK.
Part of Laura’s role is to help us unpack the container and see which MGO strengths our bee-keeping team in New Zealand has managed to harvest and pack.
Finally, when the products are ready to go. Laura helps select and pack your order ready for same-day dispatch.
The next time you’re pleased at how fast your parcel has arrived – it’s Laura and her colleagues who you need to thank.
OUR EVENTS SPECIALIST
Even though Manuka honey is one of the fastest growing natural wellness trends, there are many people who haven’t yet tried it.
That’s why Leanne’s role is so important. Visiting events, roadshows and stores to sample Manuka Doctor honey and give people their first taste.
Part of our UK Customer Service Team, Leanne is constantly on the road meeting new people and spreading the word about Manuka honey.
Many customers will have spoken to Leanne as when she’s not on the road sampling, she helps answer customer queries and process orders on our Phone Lines.
If you see her out and about, either in Holland & Barrett stores or in your local shopping centre, be sure to say hi.
