Asian food specialist Mumtaz has appointed Bill Kimberling as its new commercial director.

Kimberling joins the Bradford-based company from Butchers Pet Care, where he held the post of strategic business unit manager. He has also worked for Scholl and Cow & Gate.

Kimberling will drive an international sales and marketing push for the company's new Halal baby food range which was launched into Tesco, Asda, and Morrisons this summer.

Mumtaz director Rab Nawaz said: "We have had so much interest from the Middle East, Scandinavia and Europe and Bill will be spearheading that campaign."
