Chilled foods giant Uniq has handed interim chairman John Warren the role on a permanent basis.

Warren stepped into the role last June following the surprise resignation of Ross Warburton. He was previously senior non-executive director for the own-label manufacturer, having joined the board of directors in 2005.

In a related move, Matthew Litobarski takes on the senior non-exec role, having replaced Warren on an interim basis.

The news comes with Uniq set to announce its preliminary results for the past 12 months tomorrow (15 April).

Towards the end of last year the company sold off a string of European assets in a bid reduce debt and refocus on its core UK business.
