Former farm minister Sir Jim Paice has been appointed as a new member of Camgrain’s board of directors.
This follows his appointment as chairman of First Milk from October.
Camgrain, an expanding grain storage co-operation owned by farmers in Cambridge, announced the news this week.
Its chairman John Latham believes Sir Jim will bring a “wealth of experience and will be a great asset to the board”.
Sir Jim has always supported co-operative principles, believing that farmers need to take more control of their own destiny by achieving economies of scale and strength in the market.
“I have watched Camgrain grow throughout my time as the local MP and I am very pleased to have been asked to become a director. I look forward to helping such a dynamic organisation,” he said.
