National potato supplier Branston has appointed Peter Quinn as new non-executive director.
Quinn has more than 18 years of management experience having previously worked as divisional managing director for major food manufacturer Samworth Brothers.
Samworth Brothers owns popular brands such as Ginsters, West Cornwell Pasty Co, and Soreen.
“I’m really pleased to be joining the Branston board, it’s a huge privilege. I look forward to sharing my experience with the team and being a part of its growth and development,” Quinn said.
Branston is one of the UK’s leading suppliers of potatoes, stocking retailers as well as seed potatoes for growers.
In May Branston chairman Guy McCracken retired from his role after nearly 10 years heading the board.
McCracken was succeeded by Brian Stein, former CEO of Samworth Brothers, and former non-executive director on the Branston Board.
