“We are excited to appoint Muriel at the helm of the Association and leverage her unique and longstanding experience with our industry and in Brussels. We are confident she will be a great advocate for what our sector stands for: the unique joy we bring to our consumer while ensuring our products are produced responsibly and enjoyed mindfully” said Aldo Cristiano, recently appointed Caobisco president.
At the time of appointment, she stated: “I am keen to guide Caobisco as a reliable and solution oriented stakeholder for the EU Institutions. Our sectors are uniquely positioned to lead the way for a sustainable, and competitive industry in the future”.
