Lyndsay Fraser, Sales Advisor
Cheese aficionado, champion disco dancer and aspiring bomb disposal expert.
Lyndsay works in our sales team with several others. She is the first point of contact for many of our customers taking orders, providing product information, answering queries, advising on product availability and helping set customers up on our new online portal. Oh, and it’s safe to say she likes cheese!
Q. How did you get into the food and drink industry?

A. Not indulging in the huge variety of cheese we have in stock!
Q. What does a typical day look like for you?
A. Taking orders is a big part of my job but our new online portal is getting more popular too. We have schedules to suit customer needs which means I call for their orders at a time that is most convenient to them. Other calls often come through in between the schedule which manages to keep me busy most days!
Q. What’s the most interesting thing you have learned recently?

A. I love going to gigs, seeing local bands, and visiting Edinburgh.
Q. If you could swap jobs with anyone else, whose would you want?
A. Being one of our sales reps would be great as I’d get to spend more time helping customers find the right products for their business, but I do love my current job 🙂
Q. If you had one meal to choose what would it be?
A. Sunday roast every time!
