Ludlow Food Centre MD; Edward Berry moves on from The Shropshire Hills to the Dorset Coast.

Edward Berry came to Shropshire with a brief years ago to put Ludlow Food Centre firmly on the ‘foodie map’. After four years, he has successfully achieved his goal; by creating and building a team of enthusiastic individuals and working closely with the Windsor-Clive family.

The already successful Ludlow Food Centre welcomed Edward in 2012, since then he has successfully grown a 160 seater café, Ludlow kitchen and the most recent addition; The Clive Hotel and Restaurant. Let’s not forget the satellite site; the Ludlow Pantry – a delicatessen in the centre of Ludlow.

David Windsor-Clive, Chairman of the Ludlow Food Centre commented; "As a family and board, we wish Edward well in his next steps. He has brought new ideas and energy; he has delivered a great deal in his time with us. We know that other businesses that he works with will benefit as we have done - and we now look forward to finding someone that can step into his successful shoes."

What’s next on the horizon for Edward?

Edward's career has specialised in food and drink spanning the globe. Starting out as a Trainee Manager at the Savoy Hotel Group and now having been Managing Director at Ludlow Food Centre. In between he has gained extensive and varied food and drink industry experience in wine, champagne, coffee, tea, multi-site food service and food retail operations. He will now be based between Dorset and London and is planning to use his wealth of experience to work with many businesses.

Edward Berry, explained his decision; "I have had the most brilliant time working at Ludlow Food Centre with the on-site team and with the Windsor-Clive family. It just felt like the right time to move on, with a strong team in place and things going positively for the business. The aim now is to find the right person to keep the business going forward; it is a vibrant and exciting place to work and bursting with opportunities. I am off to seek my own opportunities and hope that I can use my experience to work with a variety of businesses. We will see what the future holds..."
