AquaGen strengthens its expertise in supply chain management
Technological changes in the global aquaculture industry give increased requirements for supply security of eggs. As the leading supplier of eggs and genetics for salmon and rainbow trout production, AquaGen wishes to develop the industry further. Offering genetic starting material for healthy fish, good growth and a low environmental footprint will still be important, but it will be just as important to deliver the eggs at the right time and in the right quantity. As an important part of this, the company is now strengthening its expertise in supply chain management.
In October Kristin Meyer (45) started in a new position at AquaGen, as Director of Supply Security. She has extensive experience in sales and operations planning (S&OP) in food production.
Kristin Meyer is educated within food technology at Sør-Trøndelag University College and supply chain management at BI Norwegian Business School and Cranfield University.
For the past 20 years, she has worked at TINE SA, most recently as head of department responsible for the supply and use of all milk in Norway. She has held several management positions in her field and her long experience in supply chain management, business support, and production streamlining and forecasting will be very useful for AquaGen. Meyer’s solid experience will contribute to the professionalization of the company’s supply chain planning and security.
Knut Røflo, CEO of AquaGen says: “To deliver what they need when they need it is a promise we make to our customers. When we now, through our appointment of a Director for Supply Security, expand the management team with special expertise in supply chain management, we are well equipped for an even more holistic approach to our planning work around the needs and supply of our products.”
