Ms Basu, a board-level communications and strategy advisor, joins in November 2023, bringing with her experience in food and hospitality, having most recently led the 2030 strategy for London’s Borough Market.

Mr Sultan joins Noble Foods in conjunction with his role as chief growth and commercial officer at The Modern Milkman.

Sarah Dean, chair of Noble Foods, said: “I was hugely impressed by both Mallika’s and Anwar’s energy, their insights and their individual perspectives on our industry. At our core, we want our company to excel for our people, our producers, and our customers.”

Board expansion

The two new appointments follow the 2022 expansion of the Noble Foods’ board, which saw former Coop Group chief executive Steve Murrells join.

Together with chair Ms Dean and CEO Duncan Everett, Mallika and Anwar will work to influence the future growth of the business, its brands and innovations, the company said.
