Pekka Kuusniemi (pictured) is the new President and Chief Executive Officer of Raisio, the Finnish plant-based nutrition group. He will take up his new post at the beginning of November 2017. He transfers to Raisio from the position of President and CEO of the Oras Group.

Matti Perkonoja, Chairman of Raisio’s Board of Directors says: “Pekka Kuusniemi brings with him substantial leadership experience of an international group and of consumer product sales and marketing. His key task at Raisio will be to promote profitable growth in line with the Group’s strategy in Finland and abroad.”

“Raisio is a valued brand house with a lot of growth potential. My strong international experience in business and brand development is a good foundation for leading Raisio’s growth story,” says Pekka Kuusniemi.

Jarmo Puputti, who has served as interim CEO since January 2017, will continue in this position until Kuusniemi begins as President and CEO.

Raisio’s operations are divided into two divisions: Brands and Raisioagro. Raisio’s most recognised food brands are Benecol, Elovena, Sunnuntai, Nordic, Fox’s, Poppets and Juicee Gummee. Raisioagro’s most recognised feed brands are Benemilk, Hercules and Maituri. Raisio employs some 1,400 people and operates in 12 countries. Group’s net sales in 2016 were €436 million and comparable EBIT was €51 million.
