It's an exciting time to be joining Clive Soanes Broilers and it will be a great role to share my previous poultry experience with the team while building on my knowledge using their experience."

Clive Soanes Broilers' MD, Claire Wright is delighted to welcome Ms. Hughes to the team: "The appointment of Emily to this new role reaffirms our commitment to exemplary animal welfare standards. Her knowledge, energy and enthusiasm will prove invaluable as we pursue innovation and enhanced welfare standards."
