Craig takes over at ANM

Alan Craig has now taken over as chief executive of the ANM Group, replacing Brian Pack OBE, who retired from his post after almost 19 years in charge of the Thainstone-based farmer-owned co-operative.

Previously general manager at ABP Perth, Craig has been in the meat industry since leaving school. He is widely respected in the red meat industry and is involved with various industry bodies, including Quality Meat Scotland (QMS). He is due to take over the presidency of the Scottish Meat Wholesalers.

Craig said: “ANM Group is one of the largest farmer-owned businesses in the country and its diversified nature has seen it well-placed to tackle the current economic challenges with an excellent financial base and committed workforce.

“I look forward to exploiting opportunities the current situation brings and look to maximise return to our shareholders while continuing to expand the many aspects of business.”

Pack added: “I can retire from ANM Group confident that it is in good hands. I am looking forward to having more time at my disposal while having new challenges.”
