Red Tractor Assurance has appointed former Food and Drink Federation vice-president and interim director general and Mizkan Euro md, Jim Moseley as its new chief executive.
Moseley – who served as the scheme’s chairman – will replace David Clarke, who is to retire later this month after 19 years in the role.
The new chief executive brings a wealth of food industry experience to the role, including serving as General Mills UK’s md and sales and marketing director for meat firm Tulip.
Commenting on his appointment, Moseley said: “I am delighted to be leading Red Tractor on the next phase of its development. David Clarke has done an outstanding job establishing and developing a comprehensive and robust assurance scheme, which has been adopted and supported by the whole food chain.”
