Cerealto Siro Foods has appointed Jason England as UK managing director, in the wake of its creation following the merger of Grupo Siro and Cerealto.
England has previously held executive positions at Sharpak (part of Group Guillin) and Bakkavor and also performed various roles in the operations departments of companies, including Northern Foods, Heinz and Northumbrian Fine Foods.
Cerealto Siro Foods makes biscuits, cereal bars and rice cakes on behalf of national and multinational brand owners from a 27,871m2 facility in Worksop, which was built by Cerealto in 2015. The site employs 300 people.
The merger to create the global company was announced on 16 November 2018. At the time, the business said it would close the 2018 financial year with an estimated consolidated turnover of €600m (£532.5m) and production capacity of 400,000t.
