MARTIN Glenn, the boss of Iglo Group, which includes Birds Eye foods, is quitting after six years running the company.

The chief executive will leave in the next few months, Sky reported last night, after leading the company through the recession and austerity.

Birds Eye products have done well in straitened times, as cash-strapped consumers have switched from fresh to cheaper frozen goods. Birds Eye is owned by private equity firm Permira.
