Shareholders in Royal Wessanen have approved the re-appointment of Ad Veenhof as president and CEO for a further four years.


At a company AGM yesterday (18 April), shareholders also gave the green light to the re-appointment of Richard Lane, president and CEO of the company's North American operations, to the executive board for a period of four years.

Last week, Wessanen said it had agreed to merge its own-brand and private-label frozen snack operations with Rabobank's Rabo Capital.

A new company will be created, unifying the activities of Habek Snacks and Wessanen's production of ragout rolls ('kroketten'), hamburgers, meat rolls ('frikandellen') and halal snacks.
