IPC appoints Peter Bradnock as policy affairs consultant

Former British Poultry Council (BPC) chief executive Peter Bradnock has been named as the policy affairs consultant for the International Poultry Council (IPC).

After retiring in 2013 after more than 20 years at the BPC, Bradnock was chosen from a number of candidates to assume the new part-time position.

Bradnock will work on issues that concern the global poultry industry alongside international organisations like the Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN, the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE), the World Health Organization (WHO), and the Codex Alimentarius Commission.

The IPC Executive Committee recommended hiring a consultant to monitor policy issues at a recent meeting in Geneva.

IPC president of the USA Poultry & Egg Export Council Jim Sumner said: “The OIE, the FAO, WHO, and Codex establish policies, standards and guidelines that affect our industry on a global scale.

“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.”
