Waitrose welcomes Barry Dick to beer, wine and spirits team

Waitrose has appointed Barry Dick as beer, wine and spirit bulk sourcing manager.

Due to join the supermarket at the end of January, he will manage the global importation and UK packing of wines and spirits for the drinks buying team.

The move means that Waitrose will now employ four Masters of Wine, more than any other retailer.

With a CV that includes degrees in food technology, European food marketing and winemaking, Dick has completed several vintages in California, the Languedoc and Australia, and previously worked for a number of retailers and wine brands. An industry expert in the specialised field of UK packaging, he became a Master of Wine in 2013.

Pierpaolo Petrassi, head of beers, ciders, wines, spirits and soft drinks at Waitrose, said: “We are delighted to welcome Barry to our team.  This new role is a fantastic opportunity for us to increase our capability to import bulk wines and spirits and package them here in the UK, further building on our sustainability credentials. Barry’s extensive experience and knowledge in packaging, importation of wines and spirits as well as his passion for sustainability will make him an invaluable addition to the team.”
