Dairy processor Müller Group has appointed Patrick Müller as permanent managing director (MD) of its Milk & Ingredients business.

Müller – who is also chief executive of the group’s doorstep delivery service Milk & More – stepped up to the role following a stint as interim MD, following the departure of Andrew McInnes.

Commenting on his role and the future of the company, Patrick Müller said: “Our focus is on becoming Britain’s dairy leader by providing great service to our customers every day and growth by leveraging our new capabilities to make a greater range of Müller-branded and private-label products for retail and out-of-home customers.

Period of restructure

“With a period of restructure, integration and major capital investment now largely behind us, we aim to consolidate and accelerate our progress in all of these areas.”

He joined the company in 2012 as UK strategy director, playing a large part in the company’s development from a yogurt business to a “leading UK dairy company”.

Müller – who is not related to the family owners of the dairy giant – went on to become strategy director of the Müller Group in 2014. After that, he assumed responsibility for the processor’s businesses in Eastern Europe and the Middle East as managing director of its international business unit.

‘Extraordinary change’

Chief executive Werner Stegmüller added: “It has been a period of extraordinary change for the Müller Milk & Ingredients business and for the dairy industry as a whole in the UK. 

“Patrick and his team will bring stability, clarity and drive to ensure that the benefits of the acquisitions, investment and hard work are now fully realised for all.”

Meanwhile, last month saw international brewer AB InBev appoint Paula Lindenberg​ as its next president of UK operations.
