Dairy exporter A2 Corporation has appointed a new head of its British subsidiary.

Scott Wotherspoon will take up the post of chief executive of the wholly owned subsidiary, A2 Milk UK.

Wotherspoon was with Unilever for 15 years and most recently was chief executive of Plum Baby, a food company now owned by Campbell's.

Managing director of the group Geoffrey Babidge said the appointment was consistent with the plan to drive growth in the UK business from the management level.

The Auckland-based niche milk company bought out its joint venture partner in Britain to speed up development of that market in November last year.

A2 and Muller Wiseman Dairies had agreed to change the structure of the A2 Milk UK joint venture to take advantage of the "significant opportunity" for A2-branded products there and in Europe, the company said at the time.

A2 has operations in Australia, New Zealand, the UK and China and is pursuing growth opportunities in Asia, North America and Europe.
