Snacking giant pladis has appointed Jennifer Moss as global Chief Research and Development (R&D) Officer. She will start her new role in November 2020.
Moss, who holds a PhD in Chemical Engineering, will join the pladis leadership team to focus on a “cutting-edge approach to innovation” to build a pipeline of new products to meet the needs of consumers.
