Carol retired from a career in the financial industry trading stocks on the global stock markets over 6 years ago. She moved back home to Ireland from Canada to realise a long held dream to start her own food business making natural stocks. After completing both cooking courses and health and nutrition training, Carol founded her business Carol's Stock Market at the end of 2016 and now manufactures a premium range of all natural stocks, bone broths and gravy in a purpose-built manufacturing facility in Derry..
Finvola is our Manager of Production. She oversees all aspects of the production process and that is no easy task! When Finvola is in the kitchen, everything is calm and organised. She is the ultimate multi-tasker and takes all the daily challenges of running a very busy production kitchen in her stride. Finvola is a talented chef and is just in the process of completing her Culinary Arts Degree. She has lots of experience through her time at the North West Regional College's Foodovation Centre helping food businesses grow and develop.
Michelle is the longest serving member of our team and has been with us since almost the beginning. Michelle has a lot of international experience but came back home to Donegal and in between raising young babies, is a very talented and experienced chef. She tastes every batch of stock that is made to make sure the taste and quality is there and nothing leaves the kitchen until she is happy with the flavours.
Andrew is responsible for many things at Carol's Stock Market but mainly packing and shipping all our orders. He also takes care to make sure our packaging inventories don't run low and when we need a "heavy lifter", he is the man for that job! He has great attention to detail and never gets frazzled when under pressure. His calm demeanour really comes in handy when we are under pressure.
Leigh is the newest member of our team and a fellow yoga teacher! We are delighted to have her on board as she keeps the kitchen ticking over and provides great support to our chefs. With her great sense of humour, she always has a good joke to tell when we need it. Her lighthearted attitude and great work ethic is a welcome addition to our growing team.
