Noel Keeley, CEO, Musgrave
While the world is changing, our overarching purpose of Growing Good Business has become more relevant than ever. It means having a commercially successful business, but also a sustainable business that will leave a lasting legacy for future generations.
In 2019 our innovative and agile response to consumer demand delivered solid growth. Group turnover amounted to €3.9 billion, up 2.4% on 2018 when normalised for the impact of currency movements. Our brands remained leaders in their respective markets, and we continued to increase their presence internationally.
We have learnt a huge amount during these exceptional times; we will take the best of it and build upon it. I am delighted to have taken the role of Musgrave CEO this year. I extend my thanks to Chris Martin for leaving the business in such a strong position, and I would also like thank all our colleagues and partners for their support, resilience and cooperation during this terrible pandemic.
