Stephen Whyte is the Managing Director of STAR Index. He started his working life in pharmaceuticals with Proctor and Gamble, before migrating to the Food Industry (Kerry Foods and Samworth Brothers). In 2006 he founded QADEX before building STAR Index in 2019.

“STAR Index evolved from our vast experience of Supply Chain Risk Assessment and Management coupled with an understanding that Sustainability and Responsible Sourcing are key to the future. At STAR Index we believe everyone has a part to play in turning the world around on climate change, sustainability, responsible sourcing and ethics – and we want to make that journey as easy and efficient as possible for our customer partners in order to maximise positive results.”
