Brian Stein to join Karro board

Karro Food Group, Britain’s newest pork producer with annual sales of £540 million, has appointed Brian Stein as a non-executive director. He will serve on Karro’s board, and work closely with the company’s management team and investment partners to develop the business and drive growth.

Karro Food Group launched as an independent UK-based company in January 2013 following its sale from Vion. Brian Stein joins its board with more than 40 years’ of experience in the food industry. He spent 17 years on the executive team of Samworth Brothers, including a decade as CEO, and prior to that served on the executive team of Northern Foods for nine years.

Seamus Carr, Karro Food Group CEO, said: “We are delighted that Brian has chosen to join our board, bringing with him an enormous depth of experience and a strong track record. Working closely with me and the rest of the leadership team, he will help us implement our strategy of building sustainable farming relationships, first class production facilities, a strong team and high quality product ranges in order to offer our customers the best in British pork.”

Brian Stein commented: “This is an extremely exciting time for Karro and for me personally. Since launching Karro as an independent company, the leadership team has already made great strides in shaping its future growth and I look forward to helping them to continue this and create a force to be reckoned with in the pork industry.”
