Philippe Huet (pictured) has been appointed as the new Managing Director Cocoa for Cargill’s cocoa & chocolate business. He takes over from Harold Poelma, who made a major contribution to establishing the company’s leadership in cocoa, and has now taken up a new challenge – as Managing Director of Cargill Refined Oils Europe.

Commenting on his appointment Philippe Huet says: “I am very much looking forward to my new role. Focusing on our customers will be a particular priority for me, ensuring that we provide them with the best possible service, and with the support necessary for them to develop innovative solutions for their businesses.”

In 2005 he joined the management team of Cargill’s cocoa & chocolate business as Commercial Director for the cocoa division, leading the product sales, cocoa bean origination, and risk management activities.

Most recently Philippe Huet has overseen the successful integration of German chocolate manufacture Kakao Verarbeitung Berlin (KVB) into Cargill’s cocoa & chocolate business, making Cargill the largest chocolate producer in Germany and the second largest in Europe.
