Tim Smith, the former chief executive of the Food Standards Agency (FSA), is to join Tesco as group technical director.
It was announced in February that Smith would be leaving the FSA at the end of October. But he left the agency last month to remove any perceptions of conflict of interest after securing the role at Tesco.
Commenting on his new role, Smith said: “I have long admired the qualities of the Tesco people and their business and look forward to doing what I can to help in the next phrase of Tesco’s development.”
