BMPA appoint new chief executive

British Meat Processors’ Association (BMPA) has appointed Nick Allen as chief executive.

 

Mr Allen, AHDB market development director, initially joined AHDB’s predecessor the Meat and Livestock Commission (MLC) in 1998 before moving to lead the regional manager team at the English Beef and Lamb Executive (EBLEX) and later becoming the director in 2009.

 

He said he was ‘really looking forward’ to the new challenge.

 

“For the first time in 40 years, the UK is now writing its own UK food strategy and it is important the meat industry and BMPA both play their part in shaping and developing that strategy," Mr Allen said.

 

“The meat sector is an important part of the UK economy, creating jobs, generating exports, and helping the economy grow. It plays a vital role in giving the consumer a quality product admired all over the world.”

 

Mr Allen added it had been a ‘privilege’ to work for AHDB and was looking forward to continuing work with them in a different capacity.

 

Tribute

AHDB chief executive Jane King said: “Nick has been instrumental in bringing together AHDB’s export and market development staff into a strong and effective team which will be critical in helping the industry navigate the opportunities posed by Brexit.

 

“We wish him well in his new role.”

 

Peter Mitchell, BMPA President, added: “I am delighted Nick will be joining us as our new Chief Executive.

 

“He brings with him a wealth of experience and will be joining the organisation at an exciting and challenging time for the meat sector.”
