Ian Toal joins 2 Sisters
2 Sisters Food Group has announced the appointment of “food industry heavyweight” Ian Toal to the newly created role of divisional managing director.
In the new position, Toal will be in charge of the added value poultry, chilled, food to go, meal solutions and ready to cook divisions.
He said: “I am delighted to be on board and to be given a challenge that I couldn’t turn down. The opportunity to work with a successful entrepreneur like Ranjit [Singh Boparan, owner] at a fast-growing business was too good an opportunity to miss.
“There’s no doubt our sector has become intensely competitive and we have to ensure that 2 Sisters can differentiate itself from its competitors, relentlessly innovate and not just satisfy our customers – we have to delight them. Working closely with my team, I am here to help make that happen.”
Toal has spent 30 years in food industry management, most recently holding the position of CEO at leading dairy business Adams Foods, makers of Kerrygold and Pilgrim’s Choice cheese.
He added: “There’s a tremendous opportunity at 2 Sisters – we need to build our newest offering, ready to cook, as well as driving successful sales with added value poultry and meal solutions and food to go. I’m incredibly excited about joining the team and helping to create excitement and passion for who we are and what we do.”
