Tomra Food has appointed Christian Tougaard to Regional Sales Director EMEA for Tomra Processed Food, part of Tomra Food. This appointment follows the reorganization earlier this year of Tomra Food into two business areas, Tomra Processed Food and Tomra Fresh Food. Tomra Processed Food is one of the world leaders in sorting and peeling potatoes, nuts and dried fruits, vegetables and fresh cut, as well as proteins.
Christian Tougaard has extensive business-to-business sales experience, working with processing solutions to the global food and environment industries. Before joining Tomra, he spent twelve years at Alfa Laval, managing business organization development in various roles during a period when the business grew significantly.
Christian Tougaard will work closely with Tomra Processed Food’s team, partners and customers across Europe, the Middle East and Africa. He reports directly to Karel Strubbe, VP, and Head of Global Sales, Tomra Processed Food, who was promoted this January from his previous role as Tomra Processed Food’s Regional Sales Director EMEA.
