He said: “Volatile raw material prices, sustainable and ethical sourcing issues, big changes in consumer behaviour and skills shortages are among the challenges facing the meat industry. But with export markets opening up and some of the finest traders, quality and operations personnel in the world, UK retailers and processors can really shine. I look forward to playing my part in informing and supporting them to that end.”

Sonia Young, publisher of Meat Trades Journal said: “We are delighted to welcome Rod Addy to the helm at Meat Trades Journal as editor of the magazine and in the UK, as well as, our hugely successful news channel feeding the international meat sector. Rod has worked for Meat Trades Journal's brand owner William Reed Business Media (WRBM) for over 10 years and brings with him a wealth of expertise honed in print and online having worked on Meat Trades Journal’s sister title The Grocer, and out in France for WRBM’s international portfolio of online brands. The UK meat sector is exciting and fast-moving, facing daily challenges on health, security, legislation and product innovation across the supply chain. Retail has never been more volatile. I know Rod will meet every challenge with the industry head-on and support every retailer, butcher and company operating within the UK and on an international platform.”
