John Hyman (pictured right) has been selected to succeed Brian Young (pictured left) as chief executive of the British Frozen Food Federation. John Hyman, a highly experienced food industry professional, was previously UK group commercial director at Adelie Foods and has held senior roles at First Drinks, Dairy Crest, Heinz and Arla.

John Hyman comments: “I’m delighted to be joining such a dynamic and successful federation. The frozen food industry is a real success story. Every day of the week our members provide delicious, nutritious and affordable food to millions of consumers and diners in households and catering establishments across the UK. In the last decade, Brian and the BFFF team have developed the federation to become one of the leading trade associations in the food industry. I’m looking forward to building on that success and representing our members as effectively as possible.”

John Hyman will start on August 17 and work alongside Brian Young until he formally retires towards the end of 2016.

The search for a new chief executive was announced last November by BFFF president, Peter Allan, at the federation’s annual lunch.

Brian Young has been chief executive of the trade body for almost 10 years. In that time BFFF has increased its membership, modernised its structure and launched a range of new services including an annual business conference.
