Premier Foods has appointed Nick Brown as its director of ESG.
He joins the parent company of Bisto, Oxo and Mr Kipling from Coca-Cola Europacific Partners, where he held various senior roles in operational and commercial functions, before heading up its sustainability and sustainable packaging teams.
In this newly created role, Brown will report to corporate affairs and ESG director, Hannah Collyer and will oversee the company’s growing environmental, social and governance agenda and will be responsible for delivering against the company’s sustainability targets.
This includes reaching 100 per cent recyclable, reusable or compostable plastic packaging by 2025.
“This is a hugely exciting time to join Premier Foods and as the business moves into its next phase of growth, I see a real opportunity to build on the momentum of the last 18 months, which has rightly brought ESG into sharper focus,” Brown said.
“I’m looking forward to meeting the teams and learning more about the business’s iconic brands, which will both play a crucial role in bringing Premier Food’s strengthened ESG strategy to life.”
Collyer added: “Nick brings with him a wealth of experience and a true passion for sustainability that will be vital in helping to deliver our sustainable growth model.
“Nick’s appointment is demonstrative of the importance we place on ESG and we’re pleased to welcome Nick to our growing team.”
