Trade Supplier of the Year
Thank you to the industry for recognising LODI UK as an award-winning supplier,” said Roger Simpson, managing director of LODI UK. “It’s fantastic, we’re really pleased. We are very proud of the award and we really enjoy supporting the poultry industry.”
LODI UK is a subsidiary of LODI Group, which is one of Europe’s largest family-owned manufacturers of pest control chemicals.
LODI UK was established in the West Midlands in 2004 and has grown to be a leading supplier to the agricultural sector. Every year the company strives to launch new, innovative active ingredients to ensure customers have the best possible armoury in controlling pests.
The Trade Supplier of the Year category is the only award decided by a public vote. Simpson said the company has been working with the poultry sector for 10 years, and enjoys working with distributors and farmers in the poultry industry, “finding the best formulations for rodent and fly control, and trying to provide innovative solutions to help them in their businesses”.
Simpson said David Reece, LODI’s technical adviser, had spent a lot of time advising farmers around the country how best to use pest control products. “We have really tried to support the poultry industry and it has supported us in turn,” said Simpson
He also paid tribute to his team, and how they had handled the challenges of 2020: “I think every single business has faced a challenge,” said Simpson. “We are fortunate in that the agriculture sector carried on feeding the country, and worked hard through this lockdown, and we are proud to have supported it through this time. I have got a lot of people working from home now; I only have the operations team here to ensure products leave our offices. So, a big thank you to my team for supporting the business through these tough times. It has been a great team effort. But we wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for the farming industry.”
