Stock Journal
The new managing director of Coca-Cola Amatil's food processing unit has wasted little time trying to reverse the decline in the packaged fruit sector. Less than a month after taking the helm of SPC Ardmona from Vince Pinneri, Coca-Cola veteran Peter Kelly has moved to slash the processor's fruit intake and production following a slump in demand, mainly from export customers. Kelly also has stepped up pressure on the Gillard Government to lift support for the struggling fruit and vegetable processing industry, which has been hit by a deluge of cheap imported product from Thailand, South Africa and Italy.
