Hy-Line International appoints new tech specialist, lead nutritionist in Southeast Asia



Hy-Line International announced on August 19 that Princess Cortez has been appointed as the company's technical specialist and lead nutritionist in Southeast Asia.


Cortez has been with Hy-Line since 2018, serving as a technical service specialist. Her new role will cover maintenance and updates for nutritional and formulation programmes, support and training of Hy-Line's global technical service team and the provision of problem diagnosis and solutions for key accounts.


"Southeast Asia will continue to be supported with the most technical service coverage, driven by Hy-Line's global but local initiatives," Ron Gooi, director of Southeast Asia, said. "Princess has gained more knowledge and experience working closely with our customers and is very deserving of this next step."


Cortez earned her bachelor's degree in animal science, specialising in poultry nutrition from the University of the Philippines Los Baños.


In her work, she evaluated the chemical, nutritional and economical values of feeds, feed additives, nutritional supplements, medications and vaccines for commercial poultry. She also initiated and facilitated nutrition evaluations and trials.


"I look forward to working alongside our global customers to understand their management perspectives," Cortez said. "I hope to implement the most suitable nutrition programme to achieve the greatest genetic potential of Hy-Line birds."
