Bartek Ingredients Inc is adding two new members to its leadership team.
The Canada-based feed ingredient company has appointed Jeff Billig as vice president of marketing and business development and Heinrich Schaefer as international sales director.
The company, which, among its many activities, looks to displace antibiotics in animal feed, said it recently executed several significant capital projects to expand its capacity and improve efficiency. In February, CEO, John Burrows, outlined objectives for 2019. One of the targets set is an increase in its malic and fumaric acid capacity, to the tune of an additional 5,000 tons per year, he said.
Previously, Billig was the general manager of Delavau Food Partners and a business director at Ingredion. His role at Bartek includes expanding sales, improving margins and encouraging further growth.
Schaefer will be based in Germany, in Bartek's new German branch. He has a background in international sales with a focus on food and specialty industries. Most recently he was the global sales director for HYET Sweet. He also worked at Jungbunzlauer piror to that and helped grow its global sales team and international distribution network, with an emphasis on citric acid. At Bartek, he is charged with developing and extend the direct sales and distribution programs in Europe, Asia and Latin America.
In addition to the new hires, Milad Moshfeghian was promoted to vice president of new product development at Bartek.
