Goodman Fielder Australia managing director Andrew Hipperson was killed in a motorcycle accident in New South Wales on Saturday.

The NZX and ASX-listed food producer said Hipperson was a valued member of its group executive team and had led the company's Australian operations for more than two years.

In a market announcement this morning, Goodman Fielder chief executive Chris Delaney said Hipperson would be deeply missed.

"We offer our deepest condolences to his wife and family and the thoughts and prayers of the entire company are with them at this very distressing time."

Hipperson previously worked as the managing director of Goodman Fielder's home ingredients and Asia-Pacific businesses.

"He was widely respected both within our company but also across our industry," Delaney said.

Until Hipperson's replacement was named, the Australian business would report directly to the chief executive.
