Dan Jacobson is appointed Group Procurement Director
As from 1 of January 2023 Dan Jacobson will hold the position as Group Procurement Director. Dan has a broad and strong experience from the food industry after working both at Axfood and at ICA.
Dan Jacobson has long experience from working within the food industry. Previously Dan was CEO at Urban Deli, a concept owned by Axfood, that offers a restaurant, bar, food hall and food store – all in the same location at four different places in Stockholm. Earlier Dan has been Assortment and purchasing director Fresh produce at ICA AB.
Having a broad experience throughout the whole food industry value chain – from production to consumer goods and experiences – Dan is now looking forward to focus on poultry
— I’ve worked with food all my working life – and can’t think of anything more fun. And if you must choose within the food industry, poultry is the most exciting and intensive area when it comes to development/innovation, and Scandi Standard is the obvious choice due to its strong position on both national and European markets.
Develop and strengthen procurement
The mission for Group Procurement is to drive efficiency end-to-end within Scandi Standard, by securing best possible and most cost-efficient supply and spend deals in the whole value chain.
In his role as Group Procurement Director, Dan will be responsible to develop and strengthen the function, together with the Procurement team. Several of the roles are based in Denmark and Dan will spend working ours in both Denmark and Sweden as well as other countries.
— I am genuinely interested to understand the business in depth as it creates better conditions to create value for the company. The challenge right now from a purchasing perspective is the situation the world is in, which creates extremely high price trends for many inputs but also a shortage of many products.
According to Jonas Tunestål, CEO of Scandi Standard, Dan Jacobson will be an important asset for Scandi Standard moving forward, based on the experience Dan has as a former Director of assortment and purchasing of fresh produce:
— I feel confident that Dan can contribute in a great way to the development of procurement within Scandi Standard. With his broad experience and his ability to develop high performing teams, I believe Dan together with the competent purchasing team can make a strong contribution to take Scandi Standard to the next level.
