Zero Waste Promise

Team Buttermilk

  • Tracy McDonnell Goad

    The Boss

    Our Great Leader, the visionary who pulls us together and forward. On a mission to uncover difficult truths and sort them out, one bag of choccys at a time.
  • David Goad

    Chief Chocco

    Part man, part genius, David is the original Treat Trailblazer who is relentless in his pursuit of perfection in each mouthful.
  • John Lyons

    Operations King

    He's worked with beans. He's worked with beers. He can strip down a Kawaksaki Triple using only a flat head and a tooth pick. He makes us raise our game, and then some.
  • Lisa Oakes

    In Charge of Numbers

    Champion of ethical finances and believer of putting people before profit. Keeps the great Buttermilk Mothership on track, even at the Christmas Party...
  • Clare Pengelly

    Operations Guru

    What Clare can't tell you about the insides of a Hacos machine isn't worth knowing, and quite frankly, it's her brains which have made our Kitchen the award-winning centre of excellence it is today.
  • Gareth Toms

    Commercial Champ

    Each business needs a link between the divine [choccy] and the mortal [retailers]. Gareth is our saviour. And probably the nicest man in Cornwall. But don't tell him we said that.
  • Louise Adams

    Technical Manager

    Lou keeps our Free From free from and carries this responsibility with grace and humour. It's serious stuff when allergens and food are on the line, and we'd be nuts to make a joke of it.
  • Rebecca Miles

    Marketing Whizz

    Sitting in the middle of a one-of-a-kind venn diagram of creative insouciance, front-line data analytics and vegan fudge.
  • Jodie Duthie

    Accounts Captain

    Coordinating our cross-channel accounts, Jodie keeps everything organised and will sort out any problem that crops up. Outside of work she’s known to partake in karaoke (terribly) and enjoy a sea swim.
