BPC chief executive to retire

Chief executive of the British Poultry Council Peter Bradnock has announced he will retire this summer after more than 20 years with the organisation.

Bradnock joined the British Poultry Council (BPC) in 1991, after working in the New Zealand civil service, where he specialised in international and EU agri-trade policy.

Of the announcement, BPC chairman John Reed said: “Peter’s expertise and dedication made him an outstanding ambassador for British poultry. Under his leadership, the British Poultry Council made its position front-and-centre at all times and became a strong partner for ministers, government agencies and the agri-food industry. In addition to his unique contributions to the British industry, he was also instrumental to international poultry bodies at European and global level. The poultry sector is very grateful for his years of service.”

Bradnock’s post will be filled by Andrew Large from the Cleaning and Support Services Association, of which Reed said: “I’m very pleased to welcome Andrew to the British poultry industry. With his wide experience he has a lot to bring to the benefit to the BPC.”
