Pilgrim's Pride Corporation has appointed Ivan Siqueira as president of Pilgrim’s Europe.

This will see Ivan Siqueira taking overall responsibility for Pilgrim’s UK, Moy Park, Pilgrim’s Food Masters and Pilgrim’s Shared Services Ltd in an effort to enable greater collaboration among the organisation’s businesses in Europe.

Commenting on his new role, Siqueria said: “I’m honoured to take on this new strategic position which I believe will bring the business units closer together, while allowing us to pursue organic growth and enhance our acquisition strategy to continue building the best food company in the region.

“I will continue to focus on ensuring Pilgrim’s UK delivers excellence for our customers during this crucial period. I’m also looking forward to working with the wider Pilgrim’s family to build on our respective strengths and foundations and provide best-in-class service.”

In the interim, whilst Pilgrim’s UK recruits for a new CEO to step into Siqueira’s shoes, he will maintain responsibility of this role.
