After spending over 40 years in the meat industry, our General Manager Paul Ogden has seen it all. This makes him the ideal man to help keep all our departments working together effectively to meet the needs of our customers.
Paul started his career as a butcher in Sheffield, but through consistent hard work and an incredible work ethic he has worked his way through basically every level of the industry to become our General Manager.
“I have enjoyed seeing Birtwistles grow and I am proud to be a part of it. I am now looking forward to continuing this remarkable adventure.”
What’s incredible is that after all these years he’s still as passionate about the meat industry as he was when he picked up his first butchers’ knife. He arrives every morning at 5.30am with a smile on his face, looking forward to what the day may hold.
Paul can still be found with a knife in his hand from time to time, but his focus is now mainly on factory planning and management. His experience as a butcher is always there, giving him an advantage when it comes to checking that everything is being done properly and all the correct procedures are followed regarding safety, specifications, stock rotation and yields.
