Directorate change

The board of directors of M.P. Evans Group PLC (the "board"), the producer of sustainable Indonesian palm oil, today announces that Dr Darian McBain will be resigning from the board on 31 March 2022. Darian was appointed as a non-executive director on 1 January 2020, and is recognised for her experience in the palm-oil industry and particularly her work in sustainability.

Darian has recently been appointed chief sustainability officer for the Monetary Authority of Singapore ("MAS"). As a result of this appointment, Darian, together with MAS, have regrettably concluded that a combination of time constraints and the potential for conflicts of interest has resulted in the need for her to step down from the board.

The Group has started the process to appoint a suitable new board member, whose skill sets will include those related to sustainability.

M.P. Evans executive chairman, Peter Hadsley-Chaplin, commented: "We are grateful to Darian for her very significant contribution to the board over the past two years. M.P. Evans is committed to the production of sustainable palm oil, and in particular Darian's experience across all aspects of sustainability has helped the Group to continue to develop and move forward in this area. In addition, her wider contribution to the board has been of immense value. We are extremely sorry that Darian is leaving, and we wish her well in her new role."
