AHDB Pork has announced that two new members have been appointed to the sector board, taking up their roles on April 1.
Nick Davies has replaced William de Klein in one of the four processor seats and farmer, Tim Bradshaw, completes the group of producers.
Angela Christison, Pork Strategy director, said: “I’m delighted to welcome Nick and Tim to the board. They bring with them a wealth of knowledge and experience, which complements that of the existing directors.
“I would also like to thank William for his valuable contribution to the board over the last six years.”
Nick is the group agriculture manager for Karro Food Group, responsible for delivering the strategic account direction for major retail customers. Nick also sits on the Red Tractor technical advisory committee for pork, where he represents the views of processors and producers.
Tim is a second-generation pig producer based just outside York. He originally farmed with his late father, and now works alongside one of his sons, building their 950-sow, farrow-to-finish indoor system into a successful family business.
Nick and Tim will be in post, initially, for three years.
