UK - VION UK’s Poultry business is celebrating after two of its colleagues picked up prestigious industry accolades at this year’s British Poultry Council (BPC) Awards.

Rachel Almey, Farm Manager at the Poultry business's Laxfield Farm, was named the 2012 BPC-Pfizer Poultry Trainee of the Year in recognition of ‘her outstanding career development project’.

In addition, Ken Morris, VION UK's Poultry Agriculture Director, received the Distinguished Service Award for ‘his commitment to the poultry industry and his key role in welfare standards in breeding and hatching systems’.

The ceremony, held at the House of Commons, saw Ken and Rachel presented with their awards by BPC Chairman John Reed, Secretary of State David Heath MP, and Anne McIntosh MP.

Commenting on the awards, Mr Reed said: “This year’s winners represent the diversity of the industry. Some are distinguished; dedicated, long serving colleagues and others are newcomers who have demonstrated willingness and curiosity for training, scientific research and its practical application.”
