Petra Kovacova joined Coregeo® as the company’s second full-time Compliance Inspector in May 2019.
Linguist Petra has been speaking the language of fresh produce since moving to England from Slovakia in 2005. She has previously been the Commercial Manager for a global fresh produce retail supply importer in the UK.
“I believe I add real value to the brands within the Coregeo® stable as I have extensive experience of working closely with licensees and major retailers and understand the needs and expectations of the end customer.”
On the road
In her role, Petra spends most of her time out on the road visiting Pink Lady® and Tenderstem® licensees and undertaking quality inspections to ensure the brands’ highest quality specifications are maintained, while working closely with the licensees to help solve any issues. She also undertakes retail store and wholesale market visits and oversees technical audits to ensure our growers maintain the highest ethical standards and work sustainably.
When Petra is not on the road with work, she is a keen cook and gardener and enjoys exploring new places and meeting new people. She lives in a small Cambridgeshire village and loves nothing more than walking her Great Dane.
