Weetabix Food Company Uk & Ireland Appoints Claire Canty as Head of Innovation

Weetabix Food Company UK & Ireland has appointed Claire Canty as the new head of innovation. She replaces Paul Aikens, who stepped down from his role in May 2017. Canty will be responsible for delivering this year's NPD plan, as well as developing Weetabix's five-year innovation and renovation pipeline. She was recognised as a rising star in The Grocer's Top New Talent 2016. The promotion will see her move from a cross-functional role as part of the sales team, working on the Waitrose and Co-op accounts, back into the marketing team. She joined Weetabix Food Company from Nestl © Confectionery four years ago as senior brand manager for Weetabix Minis and Weetabix Original.
