Former Cargill executive, Adriaan Smulders, has been named as the new poultry director at Vilomix, which is part of Danish Agro.
The company says he brings broad international experience in both poultry research and the feed industry to the role; he has a solid background in both poultry nutrition and feed additives.
After graduating with a Masters in Animal Nutrition at Wageningen University, Smulders specialized in poultry nutrition research working at Schothorst. Then he moved into the international premix business sector, working for LNB and Cargill for 20 years, where he held many different positions in technical, commercial, strategy, marketing and management - always with a strong link to poultry and nutrition.
The past four years saw Smulders lead Cargill Animal Nutrition`s feed additives business in Europe and EMEA.
