In his new role, Mr Eismann will also be taking on responsibility for central functions such as product development / innovation, central quality management and milk management.

The Commercial business unit will still be headed up by Detlef Latka in his capacity as Chief Financial Officer.

The Management Board is set to be expanded in the medium term to include a third person.
