Alan Johnstone

Business Development Manager

Volac International Ltd

Alan has spent over 10 years in the Sports and Active Nutrition Industry, seeing what works (and what doesn’t) from a variety of angles. As part of the SCI-MX Nutrition sales team for 3 years, he dealt with specialist independent retailers, major supermarket chains and online giants. Moving from there to Ornua Nutrition Ingredients, Alan experienced how a contract manufacturing business works. Over 3 years he saw up close the challenges of managing a complex supply chain and was successful in bringing many new products to market for his clients. Now, as Business Development Manager for Volac, he is responsible for looking at the future of the whey protein industry; exploring new markets, new geographies and new ingredients. This experience across ingredient supplier, finished product manufacturer and brand gives Alan a valuable insight into the inner workings of our industry.
