Tate & Lyle has appointed current chief financial officer Nick Hampton as its new chief executive, effective from April 1.

Hampton succeeds Javed Ahmed, who the company said was retiring.

"It has been my great privilege to lead Tate & Lyle for the last eight years, which have involved a very significant reshaping of the business," Ahmed said. 

"Today, Tate & Lyle is a much stronger and higher quality business than it was eight years ago, and with Nick leading the company along with its strong management team, it is in great hands."
