RAIN Nutrience Appoints Silvia Ferre Padreny as Technical Director

Posted on 11th April, 2022, in Rain

RAIN Nutrience has announced that Silvia Ferre Padreny has been appointed Technical Director of the company. An experienced quality controller and manager, Silvia will be filling a newly created role within the business and has already assumed responsibilities for the position.

Silvia began working for RAIN Nutrience in January 2016 as a Quality Controller. Over the years, Silvia has risen through the ranks due to her technical leadership and quality expertise.

When asked about her favourite aspect of working at RAIN Nutrience, Silvia said: "I love the variety that comes with working in a fast-changing environment in a company which is committed to consistently deliver products with care and attention.”

Kyle Dunbar, Managing Director of RAIN Nutrience, said: “Silvia has been an integral member of the team since joining the business in 2016. Silvia has designed and implemented RAIN’s food safety and quality management systems from a near blank slate. These standards have been upheld and built upon during periods of rapid change and business growth. Silvia’s leadership has been instrumental in developing and ensuring there is an entrenched food safety culture throughout all levels of the organisation. Silvia’s commitment and contribution has been invaluable in shaping the business we are today, and I am excited to move forward together as we look to realise our ambitions growth plans.”

In a statement, Rupert O’Connell, Owner and Founder of RAIN Nutrience, said: “The business I founded in 2004 has changed beyond recognition. From the appointment of the first employee many years ago, I have been very aware of the skills, commitment, and dedication that people bring to the business. Growth and business development are not accidents, it requires people to make it happen. Silvia joined us in 2016 having moved to the UK from her home area of Catalonia, and quickly showed us her abilities, taking responsibility for all aspects of our quality systems, which had previously been supported by outside specialists. She has created a department within our business designed to support growth. Silvia brings a valuable skill set to our Board and will be a key figure in the future.”

Silvia has a degree in Food Engineering from Universitat Rovira i Virgili and has developed her career alongside the growth of RAIN Nutrience over the past six years. 

Congratulations Silvia!
