Mars Food Australia’s marketing director Bronwyn Powell has joined the board of the Australian Institute of Food Science and Technology (AIFST).

Powell joins the AIFST board as a non-executive director for a three-year term beginning this month.

A senior marketer and specialist in digital transformation and food innovation, Powell has more than 30 years of experience growing a wide range of global food brands.

Notable projects include the launch of Abbot’s Village Bakery bread and the restoration of 75-year-old Australian packaged-foods company Masterfoods.

Powell said she’s looking forward to using her marketing and digital experience to help enhance the services the AIFST provides to its members and the Australian food science community.

“AIFST has supported Australian food industry professionals for more than 50 years in so many ways, from education and training to networking, industry conferences, mentorships and career development,” said Powell.

“It’s a wonderful opportunity to contribute to key strategic issues facing the industry in a fast-moving food innovation environment.”

Powell previously worked for brands including George Weston Foods (Tip Top Bakeries), SPC Ardmona (Coca-Cola Amatil), McDonald’s Australia, Oporto, Yum! Restaurants International, Kellogg’s, Patak’s, Tip Top, Burgen, Smith’s Crisps and Dolmio.
