The Scottish Association of Meat Wholesalers (SAMW) has sworn in three new executives after the former incumbents completed their respective terms of presidency.
Allan Jess of AP Jess is part of one of Scotland’s largest family-owned meat groups and has returned to the role of SAMW president, after serving previously from 2006-2009.
Frank Clark, sales director of Scotland’s McIntosh Donald, which is part of 2 Sisters Red Meat, has become the SAMW’s new senior vice-president.
The association’s new junior vice-president is Andy McGowan, supply chain manager at Quality Pork, who runs a new pork plant in Brechin.
The new appointments were confirmed at the SAMW’s annual conference in Glasgow on Saturday 16 April, where issues impacting Scotland’s red meat industry were also discussed at length.
