Ewan replaces Rachael Bouch, who has left Pukka Pies after five years in the role.

Ewan has more than 25 years’ experience at food and non-food manufacturers, including 2 Sisters Food Group and Bernard Matthews.

Directors Tim and Andrew Storer, whose parents founded Pukka Pies in 1963, said: “Rachael has done a great job for Pukka Pies and whilst we will be sorry to see her go, we wish her every success in the future.

“We have carefully selected a new chief executive and we think Deborah will bring with her energy and enthusiasm to further build on our planned strategy for Pukka Pies’ growth.”
