Dr Mariaan Viljoen

Western Cape relationship manager

I am passionate about finding solutions, sharing information, and connecting people in order to increase animal production and save on costs.

I hold a PhD in monogastric digestive physiology and have been working in the agricultural sector for almost 20 years. I started my career as a lecturer at the Elsenburg Agricultural Training Institute, lecturing on animal nutrition, poultry production, and aquaculture, and I spent 10 years lecturing here and writing various school textbooks on agricultural sciences for Oxford University Press. I joined the team at Abagold in Hermanus, where I was responsible for three grow-out abalone farms as the production manager, before moving to a privately-owned layer hen company as the poultry production manager.

I joined the Chemuniqué team in April 2019 as the Western Cape relationship manager and now I am living out my passion of finding solutions, sharing information, and connecting people.
