I have known Connolly’s RED MILLS since 1990 and have always seen them as real innovators and leaders in an industry that can sometimes be static and resistant to change. The culture of innovation and constant effort to raise standards makes it a very exciting place to work. There is a great sense of continuing the 111 years old Connolly tradition, yet pushing forward with science-based discoveries that improve animal health and performance.
