Anpario the international manufacturer and supplier of natural products that enhance animal health, has made an appointment to strengthen the technical team that supports Meriden Animal Health, Kiotechagil and Optivite.

Dr Leon Broom has joined Anpario as Senior R&D Scientist. Leon’s responsibilities will be to drive the development of new products by leading and focussing the research and development team.

Leon has a First Class (Hons) degree in Animal Science (University of Leeds) and a PhD in ‘Nutrition and health interactions in the weaned piglet’ (University of Leeds). Prior to joining Anpario, Leon was a Senior Research Fellow at the University of Leeds where his work involved designing and managing research trials, lecturing undergraduate students and assisting with the supervision of postgraduate students.

He has also worked on a number of commercial pig units, was a director of Spottyacre Traditional Pork in Devon and worked at the food ingredient company Danisco, part of the DuPont Group.

Dr Broom commented, “I am hoping to make significant contributions to Anpario’s on-going growth and success through the promotion and refinement of existing products as well as helping to drive the delivery of new products to the market.”

David Bullen, CEO of Anpario, commented, “Leon joins us as at an exciting time as we have made a strategic decision to increase our commitment to R&D. Innovative product development, in which Leon will be closely involved, will be critical in meeting the needs of our customers. In addition, our R&D team will play increasingly important roles in addressing the concerns consumers have about food safety issues.”
