Former Findus UK MD Neil Sanderson has taken on the same role at prepared salads group Soléco, five months after taking up an international remit at the frozen food giant.

Sanderson was chosen last year to grow the Findus brand in the UK before moving to work as MD of the group's Czech Republic and Slovakia business in August 2010.

At Soléco, he has been tasked with driving growth at its two UK fresh produce businesses, Florette and Salads to Go.

Groupe Florette CEO Mark Newton will take on responsibility for growing Florette overseas.
