Max writes on a range of issues affecting the meat and livestock industry for IEG Policy and IEG Vu. He began overseeing Agra Europe’s coverage of the sector in 2010 after eight years editing other Informa titles.

He previously lived and studied in South America and has worked on specialised meat and animal feed newsletters for Brazil’s Informa Economics FNP and Germany-based FO Licht. He has two Masters degrees – one from the University of London and the other from Brunel University.

As well as market trends, he likes to explore the intersection between trade, politics and regulations on animal health and welfare. He most often writes about developments in the EU, but really enjoys uncovering news from further afield, especially Latin America, Asia and Russia.
