Andrew Higginson to become new president of IGD

Morrisons chairman Andrew Higginson has been appointed as the new president of IGD, the grocery sector research and training charity.

After already being a member of IGD’s Policy Issues Council, Higginson will succeed IGD’s current president, Leendert den Hollander, on 1 January.

Joanne Denney-Finch, chief executive of IGD, said: “I am extremely pleased Andrew is to take on the presidency of IGD. He’s been an incredibly active supporter of our work for many years and I have no doubt that he has a huge amount to bring to this role. Many thanks also to Leendert den Hollander for the passion and enthusiasm he has brought to IGD over the last two years.”

The IGD has recently teamed up with some of the UK’s largest retailers, food producers, manufacturers, hospitality and food service companies on a new industry ‘Food Waste Reduction Roadmap’, which has been developed in collaboration with WRAP to reduce the UK’s food waste problem.
 
The scheme aims to have 50% of the UK’s biggest 250 food businesses measuring, reporting and acting on food waste by September 2019 and the remainder by 2026.
