Dr Peter Plumstead

Technical director


I have a diverse range of experience, both as a research scientist as well as in applied aspects of poultry nutrition and management.

I started my career as a commercial nutritionist with the Meadow Feeds Group, the largest feed producer in South Africa. From 2007 to 2014, I also spent seven years working as senior scientist in the global enzyme research and development team for DuPont, leading the enzyme development and application research of several commercially available enzymes. I moved back to South Africa in 2014, spending two years as an Associate Professor at the University of Pretoria.

I currently serve as technical director of Chemuniqué, an adjunct Associate Professor at University of New England, and as a global nutrition consultant with a focus on the application of management and nutritional strategies that improve the efficiency of poultry production. Current core research projects include evaluating effects of limestone on calcium and phosphorus digestibility, phytase efficacy and phosphorus excretion, as well as the assessment of the variation in nutritional value of corn for poultry.
