Kiwa appoints John Clague as General Manager


Agri-food certification and training leader Kiwa PAI has appointed John Clague as General Manager following the retirement of Janette Parker.

John’s primary aim will be to drive Kiwa PAI’s food certification services, in particular GlobalGAP, throughout Europe. However, he will also focus on the further development of certification in the feed sector, the expansion of the training centre, and working with AIC to extend their schemes into a global market.

“John’s wealth of experience and knowledge of the food sector makes him a perfect fit for the role” explained Kiwa’s CEO, Brian Austin. “I’m delighted to have found someone with such a compliance pedigree for this key post”.

John has almost 30 years of experience in food retailing, starting as a microbiologist back in the 1980’s. Having held senior positions in Asda’s Technical Services, John Lewis Partnership’s Compliance division, and as a food safety expert for Asda, his new position will call on his combination of leadership, technical and compliance skills.
