Former chief executive of the British Poultry Council, Peter Bradnock, has landed himself a new job as policy affairs consultant for the International Poultry Council.

In this role, he will work with international organisations such as the Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN, the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE), and the World Health Organization on issues that concern the global poultry industry.

“These organisations establish policies, standards and guidelines that affect our industry on a global scale,” said IPC president Jim Sumner.

“As the only global organisation representing the interests of poultry organisations in the major poultry-producing countries, the IPC believes that having a knowledgeable policy person to interact with these international groups on important poultry issues is essential.”

A native of New Zealand who also holds British citizenship, Mr Bradnock worked for the BPC for more than 20 years. He represented the UK poultry industry in the IPC since 2007, and was elected to the organisation’s executive committee in 2012.

In 2012 he received the BPC BOCM PAULS Poultry Person of the Year Award at the Egg and Poultry Industry Conference.

Mr Bradnock was chosen from among several candidates to assume the new part-time position at the IPC, having retired in 2013.
