Former global chief executive of Muller Ronald Kers has been appointed as chief executive
Mr Kers will officially join on June 1.
Mr Kers joined Muller as UK chief executive in 2012 and was appointed global chief in 2015 and stepped down in 2017.
He has also worked for companies Nestle and Procter and Gamble.
It comes after former chief executive Ranjit Singh Boparan announced he would step aside and take up the position of president at 2 Sisters parent company, Boparan Holdings.
He said: “This appointment underlines our serious intention to do what we say we are going to do.
“I am pleased that Ronald is joining 2 Sisters as CEO and we will benefit from his tremendous experience working in many of the world’s leading global food businesses.
“The last 25 years has been all about growing 2 Sisters.
“Today we have reset our direction and we are focusing back on our core strengths and getting back to what we do best – delivering great value, great quality food for our customers.”
He added they had already started with commitments to greater transparency, a stronger colleague voice and simplifying the organisation but there was ‘so much more to do’.
Mr Kers said: “2 Sisters is an incredible company and I am pleased to take over from Ranjit and write the next chapter of its success story, one which is often overlooked.
He added it was a ‘privilege to work with such a successful entrepreneur’.
“Ranjit and his team have built some strong foundations here and all colleagues should never forget how we help feed consumers in several countries every day with quality, affordable food.
“That is something to be extremely proud of.”
He added he was looking to transform the business from being ‘good to great’.
“We need to build upon what we are good at, think about new ways of working, and get better day-by-day, in a way that our customers - and our colleagues - can see clearly.
“Do this and you build trust and reputation among all stakeholders and fundamentally you become a much more successful business. It is great to have been given an opportunity to play my part in helping to achieve this.”
