Transformational Change at 2 Sisters Food Group

12:28 2018

After 25 years of successfully building the business, Ranjit Singh Boparan, co-founder, owner and chief executive of 2 Sisters Food Group, has decided to step up into the position of president of Boparan Holdings, the parent company of 2 Sisters Food Group, Britain’s biggest food manufacturer. The group produces around a third of all the poultry products consumed in the UK and also supplies to continental Europe. In addition to poultry, 2 Sisters’ Protein division incorporates red meat operations. 2 Sisters is also a major player within the UK chilled and frozen food categories, and has developed a strong brands portfolio including Fox’s Biscuits.

Ranjit Singh Boparan comments: “I am fully committed to building a better, more transparent business, modernising our company and simplifying our operations. I want to take a broader industry leadership role and concentrate more on the issues and challenges that affect not only our business, but also the food sector in general such as Brexit, social responsibility and sustainability.”

Ranjit Singh Boparan.

Charles Allen, chairman of Boparan Holdings, says: “Ranjit has spent 25 years of his life building a world class food business. He has been a catalyst for change within the food industry, by challenging the norm and providing our customers and consumers with great service, great quality food, and great prices. In his new role, he will be playing to his strengths, looking at new opportunities and reducing debt that will help take the business to new levels of success.”

A process has been put in place to find a new chief executive for 2 Sisters Food Group, considering external and internal candidates. Martyn Fletcher in his capacity as chief operating officer, reporting to the board, will be responsible for the operations of the business until a formal appointment has been made.

Ranjit Singh Boparan adds: “These changes are the right ones to make at a very important stage in our business’s history and they help secure strong foundations for future development and growth. These are further major transformative steps in a journey to build a better business with a world-class leadership team.”
