Troubled food giant Premier Foods has appointed Jennifer Laing as a non-executive director.

Laing will take up the post in October and has more than 30 years’ experience in brand building and communications.

Her CV lists 16 years with Saatchi & Saatchi, twice as chairman of the London office, and culminating in her role as chairman and ceo of Saatchi & Saatchi North America.

Laing ran her own advertising agency, Laing Henry, in the early 1990s, which was subsequently sold to Saatchi & Saatchi.

She is currently a non-executive director of InterContinental Hotels Group and recruitment firm Hudson Global.

Meanwhile, the Food Standards Agency has revealed that Premier Food’s factory was “very unlikely”​ to be the source of the outbreak of botulism linked to the firm’s Loyd Grossman korma sauce. Three children, all of whom subsequently recovered, were hospitalised in the outbreak last year.
