“My new position involves supporting a base of customers, made up of farmers, integrators and feed millers. 

This includes everything from formulating diets to auditing support and quality control,” he said.

Mr Bishop explained that he particularly enjoys working directly with customers and being able to make a real difference to their businesses on a daily basis.


“The role is a fantastic challenge, and I’m looking forward to being able to develop relationships with customers and apply my knowledge with the backing of an expert team at Premier.”

Premier Nutrition also announced the appointment of Sam Wootton to the pig team. 

Mr Wootton originally joined Premier in 2018 as a cross-species support nutritionist and has now been appointed research coordinator, as part of the pig team.
