2 Sisters Food Group, the UK’s largest food manufacturer, has promoted Jonathan Russell to Director of Group Procurement, responsible for the company’s £1.5 billion a year purchasing budget and for managing its supply chain. In his new role, Jonathan Russell will be responsible for a team of 22 specialist buyers sourcing everything from animal feeds to fresh food ingredients and packaging to plastic gloves for 2 Sisters Food Group’s 44 manufacturing sites.

2 Sisters Food Group is one of the UK’s largest buyers of food and agricultural products. It currently buys around 10% of the UK wheat crop, and is one of Europe’s largest buyers of mozzarella.

Jonathan Russell previously headed up both Food and Commodity buying teams within 2 Sisters Food Group but his new wider role will see him working to build the entire supply chain to meet growing volume requirements for all 2 Sisters’ products.

“I am delighted to be taking on this new challenge and helping 2 Sisters Food Group, and its customers, secure the best materials and services, at the best prices,” states Jonathan Russell.

“I see the role of procurement at 2 Sisters Food Group as ‘future proofing’ the business, ensuring our sourcing strategy is aligned to our business units and customers’ needs. We will continue our journey on building strong partnerships with our key suppliers, especially given that we are one of the UK farming industry’s biggest buyers.”

Jonathan Russell joined 2 Sisters Food Group in 2005 having previously worked as a buyer at retailer Iceland.
