Showcasing the Best of Welsh Business


Swansea Bay Business Club to Welcome Castell Howell as Guest Speakers


Swansea Bay Business Club will welcome Kathryn Jones, Sales and Marketing Director for Castell Howell Foods, as guest speaker at its upcoming networking lunch, on Friday 14 June, at The Halliwell Centre, Carmarthen.

Kathryn will share her insights into being an integral part of one of the most impressive success stories of the food production industry in Wales. Castell Howell started as a family-run farm in Trevaughan, selling goods to local businesses in the 1980s.  Last year, the company celebrated its 30th year and it is now Wales’ largest independent food wholesalers, employing over 700 staff across its wholesale and manufacturing divisions.

Acting President of Swansea Bay Business Club, Alan Brayley, says:

 We are pleased to return to Carmarthen for our latest Swansea Bay Business Club event, demonstrating our on-going commitment to hosting events across the Swansea Bay City Region in this, our 70th year as a club. We are expecting to see another strong crowd of new and familiar faces joining us for the afternoon and we are looking forward to welcoming Kathryn and hearing more about one of the best known food businesses in Wales.”

Alan adds:

 “As the Castell Howell story continues to evolve to meet modern tastes and demands, I’m interested to hear Kathryn’s insights into this evolution, as well as the satisfaction involved in seeing a home-grown firm celebrating quality local produce and supporting Welsh growers and producers to thrive.”

Tickets to Swansea Bay Business Club’s June lunch with Kathryn Jones, are priced at £25 for members and £32.50 for non-members. This will include a two-course lunch. This event has been sponsored by Morgan and Morgan Total Office Solutions.

Bookings will close at midnight on Friday 7 June, one week before the event and guests are asked to arrive from 12:15 for a 1:00pm lunch.

To avoid disappointment early booking is advised.
