BPC chairman John Reed said: “Peter’s expertise and dedication made him an outstanding ambassador for British poultry. Under his leadership, the British Poultry Council made its positions front-and-centre at all times and became a strong partner for ministers, government agencies and the agri-food industry. In addition to his unique contributions to the British industry, he was also instrumental to international poultry bodies at European and global level. The poultry sector is very grateful for his years of service.”
