1st of May 2021 – PRESS RELEASE
After many years abroad - England, Sri Lanka and Mexico respectively - Peter Skou in 1996 returned to Denmark and commenced his career in Rode & Rode A/S (now R2); his responsibility was to further develop the food ingredients department.
After a successful development and structure of this department, Peter Skou became partner in 1998. His visionary and commercial insight has been an essential reason for the positive development of R2 Group Holding and its companies during the years: thus the strong basis of the company - based on a large diversity in business activities – has been ensured.
Peter´s large network and his commercial skills were also an essential reason for the successful sale of the food ingredients division to a foreign company in 2015; he continued for a short period in the sold company, however, as the R2 companies were in Peter´s DNA he returned and is today Commercial Director and Chairman of R2 Agro and Chairman of Nuco Invest.
During the years, Peter has been – and still is - a member of several boards both in Denmark and abroad, e.g. in the European Association for the chemical distribution, FECC. Today he is Deputy Chairman in the Commercial Committee in Vejle Kommune, Chairman of BusinessVejle, board member of DAKOFO (Danish Association of the Grain and Feed trade), and Chairman of “Vejle Iværksætter- og Erhvervsfond.”
Peter is a very passionate person – he works dedicated and professionally with everything, he involves himself in. He knows how to ”nurse” his large network and is at the same time a real family man. He appreciates his time with his wife Dorthe and their four children – and they enjoy to spend time in their holiday cottages in Skagen and Spain. He is very passionate about football and besides from being a huge fan of Vejle Football Club, he follows Liverpool just as close.
Due to Corona it is not possible to organize a big reception, therefore Peter will be celebrated internally in the company and privately.
It is with great pleasure that we can announce that Lars Laursen has been appointed as Head of Sales for Feed Ingredients. With this appointment we are well prepared for our future tasks, both in Denmark and internationally. The markets are rapidly developing: new raw materials, alternatives to traditional products and product constellation which we have not seen before.
As of April 1st, The commercial management team consists of:

On February 1st, Grete Brunsgaard, Agronomist and Ph.D., started as our new Development & Quality Manager. She comes from a similar position at European Protein.
Grete will join our management group and will thus replace Karsten C. Kjeldsen in this forum. Karsten wishes to focus on projects and product development in R2 Agro during the next couple of years instead of having management responsibilities. We have of course accepted his wish and we are confident that with both Grete and Karsten in the team, we will have strong specialist back-up and support to the commercial department.
We have chosen to outsource our marketing department to the company ”Stormes Grafisk” owned by Mette Stormes. The primary reason for this is that we will have a more flexible marketing department. Mette is self-employed but she will come to Hedensted on a regular basis in order to be a part of our house and get to know the colleagues and our culture.
On December 1st, 2020, Ahmed Mohamed Sabry Elkafory started as our Regional Sales Manager in the Middle East. Ahmed lives in Egypt and shall help boost the development in the Middle East.
