Welcome, Chesne!

Welcome, Chesne!

Note from the CEO

In the accompanying article it is fantastic to further introduce Chesne to our community.
His training, focus, attention to detail and experience has already contributed to helping our production process find the stability it needs to consistently deliver. The break between seasons has also seen less changes than over the last few years while on the back of the successes later in last season the team has been able to consolidate protocols and optimise resources to ensure undue pressure is not put on the facility and the rearing process. The first releases of the new season take place this week and moth numbers in the facility have never been so high.
Well Done!! to the whole team lets keep it going! Cheers Rob
