New QMS Board Members Appointed

Commenting on the new appointments made by the Cabinet Secretary for Rural Affairs and Islands Mairi Gougeon MSP, Kate Rowell Chair of Quality Meat Scotland (QMS) says:

“Each of the new board members brings a wide range of skills and expertise and demonstrates a commitment to promote, protect, develop and support Scotland’s red meat industry.

“Scott, Peter, Niall, Ian and Adrian join us at a time where our industry continues to meet challenges and changes – such as labour shortages, skills development and the up coming changes to farm support payments.  The team at QMS look forward to working with each of them.

“I’d like to take this opportunity to thank the hard work and dedication of Sarah Mackie, Louise Welsh and Julie Fitzpatrick who have completed their second term and who have now stepped down from their positions.”
