Hilary Nithsdale, trading controller of Unitas Wholesale for 10 years, has moved to the charity FareShare as commercial manager.
Nithsdale (pictured) joined Today’s in 2012 to launch and develop the group’s own-brand ranges, later taking on responsibility for the chilled and confectionery categories. After Today’s merger with Landmark to form Unitas in 2018, she managed the combined own-brand portfolio.
Before her decade with Unitas, Nithsdale worked at Wilko as a buyer for five years. She has also previously been a buyer at Netto and Morrisons and a national account controller at Brakes.
In recent years, Nithsdale has taken an active part in the IGD’s ‘Feeding Britain’s Future’ initiative to inform and inspire students about careers in the grocery industry and to help develop their communication skills.
In her new role, she will be responsible for the ambient and grocery categories at FareShare, which is the UK’s largest food redistribution charity. Food that would otherwise go to waste is redistributed to frontline charities and community groups that support vulnerable people in over 1,500 towns and cities, providing food for over 36.7 million meals a year and supporting 772,000 people every week.
