Blog: And so I bid farewell

Michelle Russell | 29 November 2013

Sachin Tendulkar isn't alone in bidding farewell to colleagues as, today, I enter into my final few hours as news editor for just-food.

It is a bittersweet departure, however, as I am not venturing far. Only a hop, skip and a jump away, from Monday (2 December) I will be taking up the role of news and insights editor for sister site just-style.com where I will be reporting on all aspects of the global apparel sector.

And it is to style that I go, with very fond and often amusing memories of my time as a just-food journalist.

Highlights include my return to Dublin - a city that made me feel incredibly welcome for three years of my young life - to interview Greencore CEO Patrick Coveney, and the challenge of interviewing the deputy CEO of Russian retail giant Magnit through a translator. I'll also remember my calorific trip to Cologne earlier this year for the global confectionery show ISM.

So as I prepare to embrace my new role with the just-style team, I bow my head and bid farewell to the food industry and thank my colleagues on the just-food team for two great years.

And to any of our food retail readers who have a presence in the apparel industry, I look forward to continuing working with you.
