Carin van Leeuwen

Partner Benelux

Carin worked for a long time in commercial positions in the dairy industry before making the switch to Jumbo. In the dairy industry she was responsible for concluding large fresh dairy private label contracts with national retailers. At Jumbo, as unit manager, she contributed to Jumbo’s strong growth (7 billion in 2018) following the acquisition of Super de Boer and C1000.

As a manager in assortment management, Carin has been responsible for almost all product groups in fresh, shelf-stable, frozen and non-food. She also managed the private label department at Jumbo for several years. Within the fresh categories, chain thinking has become increasingly important because transparency and origin are the basis for quality and sustainability.

With the switch to Lely, supplier of robotics for the dairy farm, she has been able to shape the entire chain, from producer to consumer. Carin is a result-oriented commercial professional with experience on both the industry and retail side.

Dutch and English are the languages ​​that Carin has a good command of.
