Food manufacturer Premier Foods has named Unilever veteran Damian McLoughlin as its new foodservice director.
He joins the Premier Foods foodservice division following 17 years with Unilever. McLoughlin was most recently sales director for the UK, after stints as global account director for the Netherlands and the UK, as well as customer development director for Europe.
Gary Taylor, Premier Foods sales director, welcomed the appointment. "We are confident Damian will continue to lead the foodservice division to success with a breath of new and fresh ideas, as well as expert industry knowledge and we can't wait to see the vision develop as he settles into the role," he said.
McLoughlin added: "I am looking forward to getting fully immersed into the Premier Foods business. It is the success and passion I have seen from the foodservice division, coupled with such innovative campaigns and leading brands that I have admired.
"As a priority, I am committed to exploring new ways to use data and insights to generate actionable solutions that meet the broader business needs of our chefs, caterers and operators."
