Hannah Elliott has been promoted to monogastric technical manager at Lallemand for the UK and Ireland.
She brings experience in many areas of the monogastric sector, as well as in-depth knowledge of nutritional biochemistry and animal nutrition.
“The pig and poultry sector are going through a challenging time at the moment. But both industries are forward thinking, innovative and always looking for ways to maximise efficiencies and performance, which makes it an exciting industry to work in,” Elliott said.
“There’s increasing demand for more efficient, sustainable food production with a reduced environmental impact throughout the supply chain, and animal nutrition and gut health have an important role to play. Therefore, we’re undertaking significant research to understand how bacteria and yeasts can improve the health and sustainability of livestock production.
“We’re very research driven at Lallemand,” she said. “I really enjoy being able to facilitate trials with farmers around the UK and Ireland and gather data which enables evidence-based decisions to be made. Good quality results build customer confidence and enable the products to speak for themselves.”
Lallemand is the market leading producer of bacteria and yeast globally.
“The monogastric sector has a far better understanding of the importance of gut health now than it ever has before, which has resulted in increasing demand for microbial solutions in this area, which is exciting for us.
“The sector is constantly evolving, there’s always something new to focus on and we can add a lot of value in this area.”
Lee Gresham, country manager for Lallemand Animal Nutrition, said: “Hannah is an incredibly valuable asset to the team and we’re looking forward to seeing what she will achieve in her new role as the agricultural sector as a whole continues to evolve.”
