Premier Foods has appointment Jette Andersen as Managing Director of its International Business Unit. Jette will report directly to Gavin Darby, CEO, and will join the Executive Leadership Team, reflecting the increasing importance of international markets to the company’s growth strategy.

She joins from Orangina Schweppes International (OSI), a division of Suntory Food & Beverage Europe, where she held several senior management positions based in Copenhagen, Zurich and Amsterdam.

Most recently, Jette was General Manager North Europe, French Territories, Caribbean and North America leading the development of OSI’s business in 40 markets.

Over the last year we’ve been strengthening our international team, and I’m delighted that Jette has joined us at this critical time. Her experience will be invaluable as we seek to expand into new markets.”

The appointment follows the departure of Peter Ellis to take up a senior position elsewhere in the industry.
