Vion appoints new director of livestock and supply chain

The company announced that Van Bergen will be responsible for the operational management of the Farming department.

"Due to changed regulations from among others provinces, but also the new vision of the Ministry of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality which is strongly focused on circular agriculture in closed supply chains, pig farming in the Netherlands is facing an important transition," the company's statement read.

Van Bergen will be given the task to speed up the development of new concepts – on the basis of demand-driven supply chains – and in connection with this, to strengthen the supply structure in the coming years. He will report directly to John de Jonge, who will take over the position of Chief Operations Officer (COO) within Vion Pork from Frans Stortelder as of 1 January 2019.

Frans Stortelder, COO Vion Pork: “Mr Van Bergen joins our organisation as a very experienced Director, with great knowledge of and specialisation in the pig farming supply chain. Due to his experience within Rabobank, we consider Mr Van Bergen to be perfectly suited for the further development of our supply organisation in the strategic direction we have chosen.”
