Feed supplier Thompsons of York has appointed a poultry specialist to their team as they look to grow their share of the poultry feed and layer market.
Harry Atkinson joins Thompsons as part of a new investment programme to diversify the business which has seen a blending facility construction at their feed mill to offer specialised feed to their customers.
Mr Atkinson comes to the company with a degree in agriculture and business from Reading University and experience working with a national compound producer.
“The recruitment of Harry has been driven proactively by the continued growth of Thompsons within the poultry industry,” said Thompsons of York, commercial director, Chris Lyth.
“As our industry and volatile markets change, Thompsons recognise the importance of having staff and products that continue to lead the way in delivering high performance feeds and expert advice to our valued customers.”
