UK convenience food and poultry processor 2 Sisters Food Group has announced changes to its leadership structure. Two new roles have been created that will report directly to chief executive Ranjit Singh – chief operating officer, protein and chief operating officer, chilled, ambient and frozen.

Current group procurement & supply chain director Chris Walker has been appointed to the role of chief operating offices, chilled, ambient and frozen. Chris Walker takes full responsibility for chilled, ready meals, biscuits, bakery and frozen trading divisions and will retain his current remit for procurement and supply chain.

Divisional managing directors Colin Smith (biscuits); Eddie Power (frozen); Simon Wookey (chilled) and Veepul Patel (bakery) will now report directly to Chris Walker.

2 Sisters is currently recruiting for a chief operating office, protein – a role which encompasses all poultry, added value poultry and red meat operations in the UK and Holland. Divisional managing directors Aart Voets (European poultry), Steve Ellis (UK & 2 Sisters Poultry), Jose Peralta (red meat) and Olivier Goudineau (added value) will eventually report to the chief operating officer, protein.

The new structure is effective from August 19th 2013.

“As our business grows, I am keen to ensure we have a team that is responsive to our customers’ needs and is shaped in a way that is fit for the future,” comments Ranjit Singh. “Therefore, I am making these changes to the senior leadership team because it strengthens the business and puts the customer even closer to the heart of everything we do. These new roles will help give greater focus to our operational delivery and bring additional expertise within our product categories.”

The 2 Sisters chief executive adds: “This promotion for Chris is well deserved. He has had an outstanding 32-year career within retail, starting at Asda before working for almost 20 years at Morrisons. As senior trading director for Fresh Foods at Morrisons, he was instrumental in developing their vertical integration manufacturing model.”
