Blog: Tesco veteran Neville-Rolfe takes director role at 2 Sisters Food Group
Dean Best | 2 September 2013
Lucy Neville-Rolfe, the former Tesco executive, has accepted a role at 2 Sisters Food Group, one of the UK's largest food manufacturers.
Neville-Rolfe, who left Tesco after 15 years in January, became a non-executive director at 2 Sisters yesterday (1 September).
The 60-year-old became a Dame in 2012 and last month was appointed as a Conservative life peer.
However, it is her experience in and knowledge of the UK retail scene that would have attracted 2 Sisters, the company behind brands like Fox's biscuits and one of the UK's largest meat suppliers.
"She brings unrivalled experience to 2 Sisters and her expertise and counsel will be invaluable as we look to continue to grow the business and realise our ambition of becoming one of the world's best food companies," 2 Sisters chairman Sir Charles Allen said.
Last month, 2 Sisters created two COO roles in a bid to strengthen the business - one COO leads its protein business, the other its chilled, ambient and frozen interests.
