Record growth stimulates further investment in quality

Product quality lies at the heart of Wye Valley Brewery’s values, so with record sales and growth this year the 25 year old business has created another new job: Quality Assurance Supervisor.

Val Williams comes with plenty of experience in this field, having spent 15 years in the laboratories at Cargill Meats Hereford, and 14 years at Bulmers previous to that. Val’s appointment is an important part of Wye Valley Brewery’s continued growth.

The laboratory at Wye Valley Brewery will be improved, enabling Val to carry out microbiological testing which is currently outsourced.

Said Vernon Amor, managing director of Wye Valley Brewery, ‘Having an experienced microbiologist like Val on board strengthens our commitment to maintaining the highest possible standards of product quality and customer service. We are delighted that she has joined us at this exciting period of expansion.’

Other developments at the brewery include the installation of two extra fermenting vessels which will increase capacity by 34%, and a new automated cask ale filling system for the safe handling of casks.

In addition the brewery is now undertaking contract bottling for other breweries.
