Paice, who served as food and farming minster from 2010 to 2012, will take up the role on October 31 when current chairman Bill Mustoe steps down at the company’s AGM.
Mustoe said Paice would bring considerable knowledge and experience to the position.
"As a former minister of state responsible for agriculture and food and shadow minister for agriculture and rural affairs for six years prior to that, he brings considerable knowledge and experience of not only the domestic market, but also the international dynamics of the dairy industry.”
