In the course of the five years that Soanes Poultry has been a client, we have done an increasing amount of new starter releases as the business has grown. This time, business growth has both facilitated and necessitated a new operations appointment to the Senior Management Team. Good luck, Simon. Here’s the story from their website..

We’re pleased to announce that we have appointed Simon Rodgers from Malton Foods to the new position of Operations Manager.

Simon will work with our Senior Management team to oversee all operations on our Church Hill Farm site.

Simon said: “It’s a very exciting time to be joining Soanes and I’m looking forward to working for a progressive business that prides itself on provenance, customer service quality and high standards of animal welfare.

“Soanes Poultry is a well-established family owned business that is committed to continued improvement. The team here is a great mix of people who have worked here for a number of years yet still have fresh ideas that help the business continue to grow.”

Soanes Poultry’s MD, Nigel Upson is delighted to welcome Simon to the Soanes team: “Simon has vast experience of the meat industry in both operations and commercial roles and has spent a number of years in senior positions with some big companies.

“This new role reflects the on-going development of the business and our new markets and is an investment to take us to the next stage.”

When he’s not working, Simon, who lives near Pickering, enjoys motorsport, keeping marine fish and cooking. In 2011, he was joint first in Long Range Target Shooting competition at the British Championships and came 4th out of 180 competitors in the European Championships.

We hope that you have a long and happy career with us, Simon.
