December 4, 2023 - More than 100 people from the UK flour milling industry, customers and partners gathered recently to mark the retirement of Alex Waugh, outgoing director general of UK Flour Millers (formerly nabim).
"Once you're in the industry, you're part of the family," Alex said. "In the world of trade associations, it's unique for UK Flour Millers that we are very much part of the industry. We get our hands dirty."
Alex's handiwork will now transition to projects on his house and spending time with his family, while the UK Flour Millers efforts will continue, working in partnership with stakeholders and ensuring the sustained contribution of flour millers in the UK, feeding the nation.
Appropriately, the centrepiece of the celebrations was a wheat bag-styled cake with flour, naturally as a key ingredient.
