Unternehmensgruppe Theo Müller has appointed Justin Cook as Chief Executive Officer of Müller Yogurt & Desserts (MYD) in the UK and Ireland.

Justin brings over 25 years of commercial, supply chain and general management experience at Kraft, Mondelez International and Jacobs Douwe Egberts (JDE), the world’s leading pure-play coffee company.

For the past 5 years as Managing Director at JDE he led the organisation through transformation and growth following its creation in 2015 through the merger of D.E Master Blenders 1753 and Mondelez International coffee, which brought together brands like Kenco, Tassimo, Douwe Egberts and L’OR.

Prior to that he spent his career at Kraft and then Mondelez International where he held a number of senior market and regional positions living in Sweden, Ireland and Switzerland.

He said: “I look forward to joining Müller, home of the nation’s favourite dairy brand[1]and to meeting the team. It’s clear that the business is in an exciting phase and ready to build on its success.

“I’ve got no doubt that there are major opportunities to continue adding inspiration to loved products like Müller Corner and Müllerlight, whilst growing the brand into other parts of the category and beyond, and into new channels.”

Justin takes up his new role with Müller at the beginning of May 2021.
