Leeds-based veterinary services firm Eville & Jones is expanding its global reach after announcing new initiatives in the Middle East and Asia.
Founded in 1993, Eville & Jones is Europe’s leading provider of out-sourced veterinary controls.
Its Official Veterinarians and Meat Hygiene Inspectors ensure meat safety and protect animal welfare under EU and domestic regulations in plants throughout England and Wales on behalf of the Food Standards Agency.
Highly-trained Eville & Jones staff also deliver audit, verification and enforcement services in continental Europe, Australia and South America.
The establishment of a new strategic alliance, Eville & Jones Partnership (Middle East & Asia), will enable the business to tap into additional fast-paced international markets.
It will be formally launched at Gulfood 2019, the world’s largest annual food and beverage trade exhibition, held at the iconic Dubai World Trade Centre from 17-21 February.
The sold-out event will welcome more than 98,000 people from 193 countries including senior government representatives and industry professionals from a vast array of sectors.
The Eville & Jones team in Dubai will include Dr Jawad Khawaja and Dr Amer Rashid who have been appointed as regional directors of Eville & Jones Partnership (Middle East & Asia).
They will work alongside the existing Eville & Jones core leadership team.
Dr Jason Aldiss BEM, managing director of Eville & Jones, said: “We are particularly excited about the possibilities this venture opens up.
“Both Jawad and Amer have first-class knowledge of the Middle East and Asian markets.
“I expect many useful conversations to take place in Dubai as we work to develop the Eville & Jones brand and reputation for excellence across new borders.
“Following on from the UAE, we intend to showcase our range of bespoke services in targeted locations across the region including Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Kuwait and Oman. I am also due to visit Pakistan in the coming days for a series of high-level meetings. Fascinating times lie ahead.”
