Faccenda managers enter new poultry course

After working with Harper Adams University for two years to develop the qualification, food company Faccenda has enrolled 12 managers on to the post-graduate Poultry Business Management course.

The course consists of four modules, focusing on poultry processing, operations, supply chain and general management. It aims to offer the knowledge and skills needed for key roles in the poultry sector.

Faccenda HR director Andrew Brodie said: “This qualification is perfect for graduates and more experienced managers who need to build their knowledge and understanding of the poultry sector and learn the latest best practice.
“It is also a fantastic programme for more experienced industry managers who now have the opportunity to build on skills learnt over many years in the workplace, in a structured academic framework.”

Ralph Early, head of the Food Science and Agri-Food Supply Chain Management department at Harper Adams, said: “Harper Adams is delighted to be working in partnership with high-profile food businesses such as Faccenda, to develop the latest in industry-standard qualifications that will bring value to businesses through the development of their staff.

“We already have strong links within the poultry sector, through our scholarship and placement schemes, so this was a natural route for progression.”
