Part of his role at NSF will be to support the assessment teams in the field and to liaise with customers on technical issues on all of the poultry and pig schemes. His practical knowledge will be particularly valuable not only in the assessment support role but also as a reviewer of assessment reports.  

Roy Boreham, NSF Certification's head of poultry, says, "Ed will complement an already technically strong and efficient team."
