“I am very proud to welcome Dr Ludeman and Mr Hubbard to the LSS team. We have a strong commitment to

“Fundamental to LSS’ corporate strategy is ensuring that we have the right systems and processes in place to
support our commitment to best-practice global standards on live animal exports. These two appointments
further strengthen our capacity to provide supply-chain assurance to our customers, the regulators, and most
importantly, the community,” Mr Ghosheh said.
