“We also like the depth and freedom of thought that Slingshot have demonstrated.”
Slingshot CEO Simon Rutherford said: “Winning any new business in a pitch situation is special, but we are really excited about winning the pork business. They operate in a very competitive category and are doing some interesting work creatively.
