“One of the most exciting and forward-looking initiatives I have ever seen in the sector.”

I’Anson Bros, home of British Horse Feeds and The Golden Paste Company, has a new commercial director.

The appointment comes ahead of the company opening a £20 million feed mill and distribution centre.

Andrew Richardson joins the North Yorkshire based business as its new facility, Waterloo House, prepares to go into production. 

Andrew has previously been a managing director and group CEO of other major agri-supply firms. Will I’Anson, I’Anson Bros’ former commercial director, is to focus on procurement as the business grows.

“I have spent my working life in the animal feed and agri-business industry,” says Andrew, “and this ground-breaking development by I’Anson’s is one of the most exciting and forward-looking initiatives I have ever seen in the sector. 

“The new mill will deliver real benefits for customers, providing security of supply, the ability to meet growing demand and the development of new products to mention just a few.”

Of British Horse Feeds and The Golden Paste Company, he added: “Sales from these divisions are diverse, unique and innovative. 

“Branded and contracted ‘own label’ is an incredible strength to the business and one I’m looking forward to further develop with the sales teams and strategic feed partners.”

Waterloo House, on the Dalton Industrial Park in North Yorkshire, has been designed to be as energy efficient as possible and with the least environmental impact.

The largest financial investment in I’Anson’s 120-year history, it is set to more than double production capacity by an additional 200,000 tonnes.

The new mill will complement the company’s existing facility at Masham.
