The Compleat Food Group (TCFG) is making a major investment in its ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance factors) capabilities with the appointment of David Moore as its first group head of ESG.

Moore, who was previously senior technical manager at Winterbotham Darby, which is now part of the newly formed Compleat Food Group, brings with him over 20 years of experience working in the food production industry.

His previous roles include senior business development manager at Oritain; head of technical at New England Seafood, and he also spent over eight years at Sainsbury’s in various technical roles.

His role will be to lead on the development and delivery of TCFG’s ESG Impact Strategy. The newly formed group said it would be seeking to create great quality, tasty food in a sustainable way that 'delivers a positive impact on the world'.

Science-based target

The company would be committing to set an approved science-based target on its journey to Net Zero. It said it would also be measuring and reporting on its social value. 

It is also running ongoing business-wide upskilling campaign that will plans to deliver certified climate literacy programmes to 100 senior leaders and key suppliers.

The senior exec team would also be participating in a CPD Climate & Net Zero learning series.

“When the opportunity presented itself to take on a role that focuses on tackling the challenges of today, from climate change to affordability, and that I could play a part in helping the business to deliver a better future for generations to come, I had to accept the task,” ​Moore said. 

ESG Impact Strategy

“Coming from a technical background with over 20 years’ experience in the food sector, working with parties at all stages of the supply chain, from customers to suppliers, to internal and external stakeholders, I can provide a holistic view on how we drive forwards our ESG Impact Strategy as a new organisation. We have a long way to go, but ESG is so important to us, our customers and consumers, and we’re looking forward to including everyone in our journey to learn and develop together.” 

Paul Monk, executive chair at TCFG, added: “This wider investment in our ESG capabilities and talent is a signal of our ambition to be a leader in sustainable practices, making The Compleat Food Group a great company to work with for employees, customers and supply chain partners.

“We know our responsibility goes beyond producing good food, so our focus is to have a positive impact on the world around us, maximising the social, economic and environmental well-being of the communities we are part of.”
