Seafood Innovations Ltd (SIL), the body charged with providing research investment for the New Zealand seafood sector is welcoming a new General Manager.
Chairman Dave Sharp said they are delighted with the appointment of Anna Yallop to head the organisation.
“Anna comes to us from The Bioresource Processing Alliance where she has managed a $15 million Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) grant which funded research and development on biological by-products from primary industries. She will be an asset to the organisation.”
Anna replaces Mike Mandeno who has been manager of SIL for five years and who is taking up the role of Mussel Farm Manager for Sanford in Marlborough.
Sharp said Mandeno had done an outstanding job in his role and they wished him well in his new role.
SIL encourages and provides funding support for innovative research and development within the seafood industry, with the aim of adding value to the sector by way of increasing the value of existing harvests; or reducing harvesting and processing costs; or enhancing consumer-driven product attributes.
SIL is a joint venture between Seafood New Zealand and Plant & Food Research. MBIE is a cornerstone funder in the company on behalf of the New Zealand government.
SIL is currently seeking new funding proposals for seafood research projects and more information is available at www.seafoodinnovations.co.nz.
