The British Frozen Food Federation has announced John Hyman will succeed Brian Young as chief executive.

Hyman, previously UK group commercial director at Adelie Foods, has held senior roles at First Drinks, Dairy Crest, Heinz and Arla.

He said: “I’m delighted to be joining such a dynamic and successful federation. The frozen food industry is a real success story. Every day of the week our members provide delicious, nutritious and affordable food to millions of consumers and diners in households and catering establishments across the UK.

“In the last decade, Brian and the BFFF team have developed the federation to become one of the leading trade associations in the food industry. I’m looking forward to building on that success and representing our members as effectively as possible.”

Human will start on August 17 and work alongside Mr Young until he formally retires towards the end of 2016.

Young has been chief executive of the trade body for almost 10 years and in that time BFFF has increased its membership, modernized its structure and launched a new range of services.

Young said: “There is still much for the BFFF to do. I’m confident that in John the BFFF board has found a new chief executive with the skills and personality to successfully take the federation to the next level. I wish him every success in the role.”
