Millard was most recently UK commercial director at IRI and previously he was channel director at Premier Foods. He has a degree in business management from the University of Nottingham and he has previously worked in commercial roles in Mars for almost ten years.
Commenting on his appointment he said: “FareShare contributes significantly to the UK’s environmental efforts to reduce food waste, by turning surplus food into social goodness for the 10,500 charities we provide with food, delivering millions of meals per year.
“Having worked in the UK food industry for 20 years, I’m inspired by FareShare’s mission and look forward to helping FareShare provide even more impact environmentally and socially.”
FareShare is the UK’s biggest charity fighting hunger and food waste. It takes surplus good-to-eat food, which is unsold or unwanted by the food industry, sorts it in one of its 30 regional warehouses and passes it onto a network of more than 10,500 charities and charity groups.
Lindsay Boswell, chief executive of FareShare, added: “We’re delighted to have Simon join FareShare. He brings with him a wealth of experience to this new role and will help us reach our ambitious targets to redistribute even more surplus food to charities over the coming years.”
