After six years as executive director, Keith Robbins has left Poultry Industry Council to become general manager of the Ontario Processing Vegetable Growers.

PIC is actively seeking his replacement.

“I have truly enjoyed my time at PIC and the many contacts made with the industry representatives,” Robbins said in a parting statement.

“This is a very dynamic and innovative sector that has moved the bars in an number of areas.”

A Centralia College grad with an agricultural business management diploma, Robbins joined PIC after 20 years with Ontario Pork.

Since joining the council in 2013, membership increased by 30 per cent, organizational revenues increased by 20 per cent, event attendance grew by 11 per cent and sponsorships grew threefold.

“We have also seen consistent growth at the National Poultry Show by eight per cent each year while still being the show that producers attend to make their business grow,” Robbins noted.
