The Campaign for Responsible Rodenticide Use (CRRU) has a new member company, contributing financially and providing expertise to the UK Rodenticide Stewardship Regime. It is Quimunsa, based in Spain, specialising in applied chemistry R&D and manufacturing for industry.
As a CRRU UK member, the company becomes recognised formally as a participant in the stewardship regime, and is represented on the implementation taskforce by export manager Mikel Paterson.
By adding to long standing commitments from existing sponsors, this arrival is timely to support ongoing implementation of stewardship, according to CRRU chairman Dr Alan Buckle.
“Clearly, additional sources of funding are most welcome to help cover what is a major and annually recurring investment in stewardship by rodenticide manufacturers and distributors,” he says. “Clearly, Quimunsa will add their own insights to help maximise the regime’s impetus, effectiveness and, ultimately, its success.”
