Bristol-based herbs, spices and ingredients manufacturer Bart Ingredients, has announced the appointment of its Chief Commercial Officer, Adam Sims, as its new Chief Executive Officer (CEO), effective 1st April 2024.

After 12 years at the helm, CEO David Collard will be handing over the baton to take up the role of Non-Executive Chairman and begin his transition to retirement.

Ahead of taking up the leadership role this Spring, Sims has assumed the role of Deputy CEO as he leads the company into its next phase of growth. His promotion comes after nine years at the organisation, with roles across Business Development, Finance and Category Insights.

Collard’s tenure oversaw the business as it boomed during the pandemic, resulting in the company relocating into a 167,000 sq. ft site in Severn Beach after outgrowing its former factory in Bedminster in 2022. More recently, the company announced the addition of Waitrose to its list of stockists, joining Morrisons, Ocado and Booths.

David Collard, departing CEO of Bart Ingredients, said: “It has been a privilege to lead the business and work with so many amazing people under the ownerships of both Langholm Capital and now the Fuchs Gruppe. This is an exciting time for the business. As we enter 2024, the team is well-placed to drive the next phase of growth. On a personal note, I would like to thank everyone that I have worked with for the support shown to me and Bart over the years.”

Adam Sims, incoming CEO of Bart Ingredients, said: “It’s an absolute honour to be the incoming CEO of this extraordinary company. Stepping into this position comes with a profound sense of responsibility. However, with the support of an incredible team and the capabilities within the Fuchs Gruppe, I am excited about the future ahead.”

Sales Director, Patrick Pace, is also set to retire from the business after 11 years. He will remain at the company on a part-time basis until his replacement is appointed.
