Premier Foods brings in new FD

Makers of Mr Kipling cakes and Hovis bread bring in new finance chief

PREMIER Foods, the company at the heart of controversy over suspected botulism in one of its high-profile sauces, has appointed a new finance director.

One of the UK’s biggest food producers, Premier will bring in Mark Moran, the former CFO of SSL International, the makers of Durex before an acquisition by Reckitt Benckiser.

A week ago, Premier was on alert after three children in Scotland were hospitalised with suspected botulism that was linked to a Loyd Grossman-branded sauce made by the company.

Yesterday, the Food Standards Agency was reported saying it could not rule out the possibility that the poisoning was linked to the sauce. Premier makes Mr Kipling cakes and Hovis bread. Premier’s share price has fallen from a high of 6p last week to 4.5p at the time of publication.
