Aviagen V-P Receives Merit Award from the British Poultry Council


Anne-Marie Neeteson, Global Vice President of Welfare, Sustainability and Compliance for the Aviagen Group, was awarded the British Poultry Council (BPC) Special Merit Award for 2019. This recognizes her representation of the industry on a global level to promote animal welfare and sustainability. The award recognizes “invaluable progress in the science around these issues and helping the industry take a leadership role in addressing them.”


Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the formal award presentation was postponed, but the BPC reports that it hopes to hold the event this year, and Anne-Marie will be formally presented with her certificate at that time.


In 2019, Anne-Marie Neeteson led the International Poultry Council (IPC) working group that adopted five of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as areas of concern to the global poultry meat sector. In 2021 she was appointed as Chair of the IPC working group on Animal Health and Welfare, Communication and Food Quality.


Ms. Neeteson earned a Masters degree in animal science and genetics from Wageningen University in the Netherlands.
