The industry is mourning the loss of Paul Kitchener, who has passed away after a long illness.
Kitchener held a number of senior roles in the industry, including chief operating officer of Brakes and CEO of Burton’s Foods. He joined Premier Foods in December last year as group technical and innovation director.
Premier Foods CEO Robert Schofield said he had a lifelong friendship with Kitchener.
“He will be remembered as a man of great integrity, who was enthusiastic in all that he did and who helped and mentored many people,” Schofield said.
