Graeme Millar, the chairman of the Scottish Consumer Council and director of the National Consumer Council for Great Britain, has been appointed as the Food Standards Agency’s new Board member for Scotland.

Sir John Krebs, chair of the FSA, said: “Graeme has a wide range of experience at Board level and he will be an excellent addition to the FSA Board.”

Millar will also become a member of the Scottish Food Advisory Committee (SFAC), which advises the Agency on food safety and standards affecting Scotland.

Millar said: “My current roles with the consumer councils and previously as a consumer representative on the Board of Quality Meat Scotland stand me in good stead to constructively debate the key issues at FSA Board level.”

Millar replaces Andrew Miller who has stepped down after two years serving in the post.
