Patties Foods CFO, Michael Knaap, has resigned after six years with the company. Knaap will remain with the company to assist with a transition process and the completion of year end statutory accounts. Knaap’s departure comes after Patties Foods warned shareholders this week its underlying profit for the 2014/15 financial year will fall to around $15 million from $17 million the previous year, following a Hepatitis A scare that caused Patties Foods to launch a mass recall of its frozen berries from shop shelves earlier this year.
