Dr. Geoff Irish

Group Nutrition & Technical Manager

A little bit about me: Originally from Adelaide, I completed a Bachelor of Agricultural Science. (1st Class Honours) at the University of Adelaide in 1988 and a PhD in poultry nutrition at the University of Sydney in 1992.  I’ve been involved in the animal stockfeed and feed additive industry since 1996.  My hobbies include walking and watching my favourite AFL team, the Adelaide Crows, and almost any sport involving an Australian team.

What do I do at Maxum Foods: I joined Maxum Foods in April 2020 and am based at Laverton North in Victoria. My main responsibilities include formulating all the milk replacers for Australia and New Zealand, sales support, new product development and supporting the quality assurance team.

Why Maxum Foods: I have always had a passion for Infant Animal Nutrition and was thrilled when the opportunity came up for me to join the Maxum team.

A fun fact about me: I breed Peach-faced Lovebirds.
