2 Sisters Food Group founder Ranjit Singh Boparan has resumed control over the poultry division, less than two years after stepping aside following a food safety expose at the company.
The managing director of the poultry division, Andrew McInnes who has been in post for just a year, has left the company, a spokesman confirmed. The division’s commercial director, Dan Howell, is also departing.
According to reports, Boparan initiated the changes after becoming frustrated over the performance of the poultry business, which accounts for around 60% of group turnover.
A spokesman for Boparan Holdings said: “The business has posted very encouraging financial results and this is set to continue as we realise our turnaround plan.”
“However, in order to accelerate this plan our senior leaders have decided to take a more hands-on approach.
“Ranjit and Ronald have one clear goal in mind, which is to continue to deliver improved results for the business.
“Already our changes have seen improved performance and we look forward to delivering our transformation plan for all stakeholders.”
