Leading Stockport-based food ingredient supplier, EHL Ingredients, has announced the appointment of a new National Sales Manager to oversee its burgeoning product portfolio.
Roger Toll (pictured) assumes his new role immediately and will oversee national sales accounts for EHL, covering the whole product portfolio of over 300 conventional food ingredients and around 200 organic varieties.

Roger, aged 56, brings with him seven years of experience, having previously worked for a European-based herb and spice manufacturer and supplier.

In addition, he has also held roles as European Account Manager and Business Development Manager at companies such as Huhtamaki and Benders.
Roger reports into Tasneem Backhouse, Sales and Marketing Director, and will provide a crucial role in EHL’s expansion plans for 2014 and beyond.

His knowledge, experience and great reputation within the food industry will support the whole company.

“He joins us during a positive period as we have solid growth plans for 2014, with many company developments in progress already. We are in a strong position in the competitive food ingredient marketplace and having Roger on the team strengthens our management structure and customer offering.”
Roger comments: “I have been aware of EHL Ingredients for a number of years and have read and heard positive reviews about the company. I have seen it go from strength-to-strength and I am delighted to be joining the company while it is in a period of growth and expansion. I look forward to sharing my experience with the team to help drive the company forward.”
Roger’s appointment takes EHL Ingredients’ staff total to 27 at its Stockport head office.
