UK, London. The British Meat Processors Association (BMPA) has appointed Lucas Daglish as its Sustainability Manager as part of the ongoing restructuring and growth of the organisation.
In a recent press release, the BMPA announced the appointment of Daglish, who had been focused on red meat procurement, animal welfare policy implementation and livestock sustainability in his previous roles as Senior Category Buyer and then Group Food and Beverage Policy Manager at Whitbread PLC.
According to Nick Allen, CEO of BMPA, Daglish’s “deep understanding of global food systems along with an ability to foster connections and collaboration across multiple players will be vital in helping our members navigate the legislative, political and attitudinal challenges that lie ahead.”
Daglish will be responsible for advising and guiding the BMPA members on emerging livestock welfare standards, associated sustainability considerations, research initiatives and policy development across various livestock species.
Furthermore, he will conduct benchmarking and review standards and practices relevant to end-to-end animal welfare, environmental sustainability, climate change and other emerging issues and engage with relevant NGOs to influence programs, protocols and policies, the BMPA explained.
Commenting on his new role, Daglish said: “I am excited to join the BMPA team and look forward to building collaborative initiatives to deliver the existing and future sustainability commitments of BMPA members.”
