UK vinegar supplier Aspall has made two additions to its senior management team to support its "growth strategy" in the UK and abroad.

The Suffolk-based firm has promoted Paul Simpson to sales director and Damian Mills to head of operations. Both the roles, announced earlier today (14 May), are newly-created positions.

Simpson joined Aspall in 2010 as national account controller for take-home following around 20 years in sales roles in the drinks industry.

Mills, who worked in the food industry before joining Aspall in August 2010, will focus on operations, including production, packaging and liquids for both the firm's cider and vinegar ranges.

Aspall chairman Barry Chevallier Guild said: "These appointments are central to supporting our growth strategy within key accounts both domestically and abroad."
