The Food & Drink Federation has appointed National Farmers’ Union director Terry Jones as its new communications chief.

Having spent nine years at the NFU, Jones will take up the role of communications director at the FDF next month. He will replace Julian Hunt, who is to join Coca Cola Enterprises GB as vice president for public affairs and communications next month.

“Terry joins us at an exciting time, when the contribution of the food and drink industry to the UK’s economic recovery is increasingly being recognised,” said FDF director general Melanie Leech.

“His skills and experience working within the food chain make him ideally suited to help FDF continue to champion the vital contribution of our sector.”
