Dear Mr Mitchell,
I am writing to express my interest for a position in the management and business development arm of Grace Foods UK Limited or the FunnyBones Food Service Division.
It is my intension to do business in the United Kingdom in the near future and seeing my past affiliation working with the GraceKennedy Family, I decided to reach out to express my interest in working with the conglomerate once again.
With over fifteen years of experience in agribusiness and international trade, I believe I have a lot of genius and innovation brining to the table that I know will benefit the business development and supply chain arm of the Group. I have spent the last seven years building sustainable business models in the prepared foods sector and would like the opportunity to share my knowledge.
Would love to have more discussion with you on what expertise I can bring to the team.
