Bonduelle Group CEO Guillaume Debrosse Steps Down

Prepared-vegetable firm Bonduelle Group has announced that its chief executive officer, Guillaume Debrosse, has decided to leave the company.

Debrosse stepped in as CEO in April 2018, having previously worked in the company’s fresh-produce business in France and the canned- and frozen-food business internationally.

Debrosse’s successor, who will be named in the coming weeks, will take up the role on 1 June 2023.

In the meantime, Christophe Bonduelle, chairman of the board of directors, will assume the role of interim chief executive. He will be supported by Debrosse during this transition period.

Bonduelle Group is a French family business with 12,000 employees. Its ready-to-use products are grown on 70,000 hectares and marketed in 100 countries, generating sales worth €2.2 billion. Its four brands are Bonduelle, Cassegrain, Globus and Ready Pac Bistro.

In a statement, the group noted that it remains committed to its ‘field to the plate’ strategy, and it is pursuing measures to ensure profitable and sustainable growth.

“The board of directors and I are convinced that, given the demanding environment in which the company is operating, the group needs a new lease on life,” said Christophe Bonduelle.

He added, “The new CEO, whose identity will be announced in the coming weeks, has extensive knowledge of the US market, where he has held general management positions for more than 20 years in several groups in the food sector.
