Fuud recruits Country Manager in Norway

Fuud continues its Nordic expansion in Functional Foods and appoints Björn Alvaer as Country Manager in Norway.

Fuud, which in the spring made five acquisitions in the fast-growing food category Functional Foods, continues its expansion in the Nordic region by recruiting Björn Alvaer as Country Manager. Björn has many years of experience in the food industry and has worked in retail for Coca-Cola, Kraft Foods/Mondelez and Findus.

Björn Alvaer, Country Manager Norway comments:

  • In a short time, Fuud has built up an exciting company with a strong Swedish market presence and a very attractive product portfolio. I am excited to be part of the journey and establish these brands in the Norwegian market, and at the same time contribute to Fuud's vision - to become the Nordic region's leading company in Functional Foods.

Peter Blom, CEO of Fuud, adds:

  • We have now begun the work of establishing ourselves in Norway. Beijing8 is already present in the Norwegian market and during the autumn we will establish several of our other prioritized brands. Even though we are at an early stage, the potential is promising. The recruitment of Björn Alvaer is a key step in strengthening our competence to meet Fuud's continued effort in expanding the business both organically and through acquisitions.

We are strengthening our geographical position by building up our Norwegian presence in the Functional Foods area. Fuud has a rapid growth in the Swedish grocery trade and in convenience. We look forward to launching several of our brands in Norway together with Björn Alvaer.
