ECR Ireland has appointed Helen Kenny, commercial director, Green Isle Foods, as its new supplier co-chair.
Joining John Brennan of Tesco Ireland as co-chair, Helen takes over the role from Diageo's Anne Scullion.
“On behalf of the team at Green Isle Foods, I am delighted to have this opportunity to work with ECR Ireland in an industry leadership role to advance how we can work better together," said Kenny.
"Encouraging better collaboration between trading partners is at the core of ECR, and this is especially relevant right now as there are so many ways we can deal with the effects of the pandemic, the war in Ukraine, and inflation, by collectively working better as an industry.”
Declan Carolan, general manager, ECR Ireland, and co-chair, ECR Community, said he was delighted that Helen and Green Isle Foods will play a leading role in ECR Ireland for the next three years.
"Green Isle Foods has been a pivotal member of ECR Ireland for many years and is an Irish frozen food company with well-loved Irish brands, Donegal Catch and Green Isle Foods," he said. "They are passionate about inspiring healthy, convenient meals solution for families that can also reduce food waste and save consumers money.”
“I wish to offer thanks to Anne Scullion for her dynamic role in ECR Ireland as co-chair during 2021, and in particular, for the launch of ECR Heroes during her tenure.”
