Branded food manufacturer General Mills has appointed a supply chain director to lead its operations in Northern Europe.



Victoria Cobos has joined the company as NEC Supply Chain Director, leading its operations across Northern Europe. She was previously Director of Integrated Business Planning at Nomad Foods and spent nine years at Unilever.

Predecessor Emily Thom has transferred over to the company’s Planning and Logistics division to lead the team as Planning and Logistics Director for Europe and Australasia.

With extensive experience in managing end to end Operations, Innovation, and Transformation Programs in consumer packaged goods, Cobos previously ensured robust supply chain improvements across several geographies at Unilever and, more recently, crafted the Brexit readiness strategy for Nomad Foods.

Ben Pearman, Managing Director, General Mills Northern Europe, said: “General Mills’ mission has always been to ensure our supply chain is sustainable and agile to provide the best possible service to our customers.

“Victoria’s extensive experience will help us continue to improve our processes and respond to a rapidly changing market, especially in the face of current economic uncertainty and the implementation of Brexit.”
