I have been working with Hankkija as Export Director since the beginning of 2020. I am very excited to work with Hankkija’s cutting edge feed innovations, having their roots deep in the Finnish nature. Progres® and Progut® offer the feed industry great and unique opportunities which we are happy to present to our customers.
Antibiotics resistance is a growing concern making headlines on a daily basis. Our contribution in helping to reduce the use of antibiotics is ever more important as the global community is fighting the global pandemic.

After graduation from the University of Helsinki (M.Sci. Agr.), I have had over 30 years unbroken service in the feed division of Hankkija Ltd. (former Suomen Rehu). It has been a pleasure to have various roles within the feed industry including research and development, general management, business development and export management. This has given me a broad range of experience in the business. My special interest is in the new solutions for antibiotic free animal feeding and I have been actively involved in the development of the patented Progut and Progres innovations. Currently, I am leading the research and development of Hankkija’s feeds and feed additives.

The One Health concept and the global battle against antibiotic resistance are key motivators in my work at Hankkija FFI. For more than twenty years, I have been involved in the research and development of innovative feed products which improve the gastrointestinal health and well-being of farm animals.
For my PhD, back in 2001, I studied the physiological effects of dietary betaine in broiler chickens. Since then, my work has covered aspects of intestinal microbiology, physiology and immunology of all farm animal groups. It has been a pleasure to be involved in the R&D of Progut® and Progres® through many years, and the future product portfolio of Hankkija FFI looks also very promising.

I have worked at Hankkija for 10 years: first as the responsible for poultry feed development in domestic feed business, and since 2018 for the export team. My background is in research, and research is still my passion. I love to study novel things and to get deep understanding of them. Previously I’ve worked as a poultry research scientist at MTT Agrifood Reseach Finland. During those years I did my doctoral studies and the thesis on laying hens. In my current position I’m motivated by the urge to learn new skills, and by being able to utilise my experience in practice, but foremost by being a part of the team pursuing the antibiotic free animal production worldwide with the Finnish feed innovations.
