Cornwall-based St Austell Brewery has appointed Andrew Holden (pictured) as procurement director to help the business gain best value from its supply chain. Holden joins after more than ten years in a similar role at the Eden Project, while he has also worked in senior procurement roles at Habitat and IKEA. Holden cultivated the partnership between St Austell Brewery and the Eden Project, which included Eden-inspired beers, sponsorship and a supply contract worth more than £250,000 a year. St Austell Brewery chief executive James Staughton said: As we look at introducing new resource procurement and management systems, it is the perfect time for us to bring in someone with Andrew’s experience locally and on a wider scale to help us manage our relationships with suppliers and create the best environment for us to do business with them. Meanwhile, the company has become the first UK brewer to adopt the X-Flow filtration system. Designed by Netherlands-based Pentair Systems, X-Flow is more traditionally used for water purification and in the wine industry. X-Flow will replace the traditional “kieselguhr” system, which uses filter powders based on fossilised fish bones. St Austell Brewery director Roger Ryman said: While X-Flow has been picked up by one or two of the largest breweries in the world, a lot of eyes are on us as an early adopter. This is a proven system that will replace one that really doesn’t belong in the modern, more environmentally friendly world.
