EMEA regional sales manager, Jon Handley, is leaving Troutlodge to take over operation of the Berkshire Trout Farm where he will continue as Troutlodge’s UK distributor of trout eggs.
An opportunity he could not resist led to Jon’s decision to take over the operation of the Berkshire Trout Farm. The 15 acre farm opened for business in 1907 and is the largest trout farm in the UK that supplies both Brown Trout and Rainbow Trout for restocking and Rainbow Trout for smoking. It has the capacity to hatch 10 million eggs per annum.
“We wish Jon all the best with his new venture,” said Keith Drynan, general manager of Troutlodge. “Although we are going to miss his contribution to our sales team, we welcome Jon with great confidence to our distribution network.”
Troutlodge, part of Hendrix Genetics, is a leading supplier of eyed Rainbow Trout eggs and specialises in the production of all-female and triploid (sterile) eggs. Troutlodge maintains four strains of Rainbow Trout that allows supply of Rainbow Trout eggs every week of the year.
All rainbow trout eggs are produced from a genetic selection program which is designed to maximise value to customers by optimising hatch-out rates, feed conversion, growth and marketability.
