Chicken is big business and the science behind poultry nutrition is an incredibly precise mix of chemistry and biology. As the market for poultry continues to increase worldwide there is ongoing need to industry to improve the efficiency and sustainability of chicken feed. Natalie Morgan is a poultry nutrition expert who works to understand how the diets fed to livestock can be modified to improve overall animal health and yield.

In this interview we talk about the connection that people have to their food in a society where most people are getting their food from supermarkets rather than farmers and growers. We also talk about the difference between caged, barn reared and free-range chickens, and pitch ideas for new ‘big thing’ tourist attractions.
