David Clarke to retire after 19 years at the helm of Red Tractor
4th May 2017 / By Alistair Driver
David Clarke, the first ever chief executive of Red Tractor Assurance, is to retire after 19 years building the scheme from scratch.
Launched in 2000, the Red Tractor logo was established in the wake of the many food scares of the 1990s, including BSE, to reassure consumers over the reliability and safety of British food.
Mr Clarke will be replaced by Jim Moseley (left) – currently the assurance scheme’s chairman – later this month. He brings with him a wealth of food industry experience from a career which has spanned FMC (Meat) Ltd, Tulip, General Mills and, most recently, Mizkan.
He has also presided over both the Food & Drink Federation and the Provision Trade Federation.
