Boparan's Departure Highlights 'Transformational' Change Under Way At 2 Sisters: Analysis
In announcing the decision of Ranjit Singh Boparan to step down as chief executive of 2 Sisters Food Group earlier today, the company described the move as a "transformational change".

The 51-year-old will remain involved with the group, albeit from a distance, taking the position of president at Boparan Holdings Limited (BHL), the parent company of 2 Sisters. However, in terms of the day-to-day running of the business, there's no doubt that the entrepreneur leaves big shoes to fill.
