Terrena, the France-based agri-food co-op behind brands including Pere Dodu chicken, has named Alain Le Foch as its new chief executive.

Le Floch, 62, has been CEO at another cooperative, Vivescia, since 2012. Before joining baker-to-corn processor Vivescia, Le Floch had led Champagne Cereales for two years.

Le Floch’s career also includes five years as operations director for the then Cadbury Schweppes’ operations in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. He held that post from 2000 to 2005.

In April, Terrena set out plans to embark on an investment programme to modernise the production plants of its poultry arm, Galliance.

Terrena also told just-food it was in negotiations with Dawn Meats to redefine the terms of their collaboration over the next four years.

The Irish group has held a 49% stake in the French group’s beef processing subsidiary, Elivia, since 2015 with the option of taking majority control this year, Terrena retaining a 30% stake.
