Greencore has appointed David Price as managing director of its Scotland-based mineral water business Campsie Spring.

Price joined Greencore two years ago and has since held a number of roles, including supply chain director and operations director of Greencore Grocery, and site director for Campsie Spring. Prior to Greencore, Price worked at Safeway in a variety of category management positions ranging from bakery to frozen foods.

Tony Hynes, chief executive of Greencore, welcomed Price's appointment. "Our category managing directors are pivotal to our development as a dynamic group of convenience foods businesses. David has made a significant impact at mineral water and I wish him continuing success as he takes the helm of this exciting category."

Greencore draws its water from the Campsie Fells in southern Scotland and ­supplies the majority of major retailers, as well as the independent and foodservice sectors.
