Troutlodge Sales Manager Jon Handley continues as UK distributor

EMEA Regional Sales Manager, Jon Handley, has decided to leave Troutlodge and continue as Troutlodge’s UK distributor of high-quality trout eggs. With the knowledge and experience of 30 years in aquaculture, of which five years specifically dedicated to trout, Jon will provide UK trout producers with easy access to the best performing trout genetics in the industry.

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 United Kingdom 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.

Keith Drynan, General Manager of Troutlodge commented: “We wish Jon all the best with his new venture. Although we are going to miss his contribution to our sales team, we welcome Jon with great confidence to our distribution network. With his technical skills and our trout genetics, we believe mutual success is guaranteed.”
