Our Team

Kevin Clarke

Kevin Clarke

Owner/Managing Director

Kevin has founded and run businesses in packaging, logistics, production and development for the past four decades. He has worked with large organisations including Marks & Spencer, The Co-op, Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Asda, Waitrose, Morrisons, Budgens and many food industry suppliers.

Working on our ground-breaking riji product, Kevin calls upon 30 years of international operations in Europe, China & South East Asia to bring this revolutionary advance to the food industry.

When he’s not working, Kevin likes to relax with family from Sydney to Somerset, and in good weather may jump on his Triumph Thunderbird 1700cc motorcycle to get a blast of fresh air.

He loves travelling, and such is his commitment to our mission, whether it’s a trip somewhere in the UK, Europe, Australia, USA or the Far East, he always visits supermarkets and other food outlets to find out what’s going on out there.

David Martin

David Martin

Operations Manager

David is KCC’s Operations Manager, running the fast-growing factory operation. Ably qualified to manage, David is a trained mechanical engineer with a lifetime of manufacturing experience both in the UK and overseas.

A keen golfer, David manages to find time for the occasional round of golf. It’s such a shame that the ball often has a mind of its own!

Terry Robins

Terry Robins

Technical Director

Terry, KCC’s Technical Director, has a lifetime of experience in the food industry, having worked for retailer Sainsbury’s for over 30 years. As Technical Manager there, Terry worked to improve food safety across the industry, and was co-author of the BRC standard hygiene and quality system, which has since set improved standards around the globe. Having travelled far and wide with KCC to develop sustainable packaging, Terry has worked with Kevin for the past decade to create riji, our bio-degradeable dual ovenable food tray.

Semi retired, Terry lives in mid Wales with his wife Liz, and enjoys making things work with his latest project, rebuilding and making roadworthy a classic sports car.

Gill Hackney

Gill Hackney

Bookkeeper

Gill, our qualified bookkeeper, makes sure that our systems are up to date and calls on years of experience running businesses to ensure our finance operation runs smoothly. Gill’s wide taste in music saw her in the mosh pit at a Metallica gig recently – but she is just as likely to be listening to Dvorjak.

Annette Moran

Annette Moran

Office Manager/PA

Annette, appointed to make sure that KCC’s rapid growth is efficiently managed, is our office manager and PA to Kevin. Experienced in team building, project management and large scale organisations, Annette does this all on just three days per week, from Tuesday-Thursday!

Annette and husband Steve are passionate sailors and plan one day to sail off into the sunset on their yacht Cordelia ‘going where the wind will take them’, only returning to the UK when they have had enough or they have spent it all!

Kamil

Kamil

Electrical/Mechanical Engineer

Kamil (pronounced cam-eel) is KCC’s experienced electrical/mechanical engineer, maintaining all equipment and production lines. He is also our logistics supervisor. Fluent in English, Polish and Russian, and keen on coarse fishing and fixing cars, Kamil is happiest finding ways to do things better.
