Stephen Moon SiS chief executive

Science in Sport, the AIM-listed premium performance nutrition company serving elite athletes, sports enthusiasts and the gym lifestyle community, has appointed Andy Bott to the newly-created role of group supply chain director.

He joins Nelson-based Science in Sport from The Hut Group where he was group manufacturing director for food & beauty, a role that included responsiblilty for the three manufacturing sites of Myprotein, the world’s largest online protein brand.

Prior to The Hut Group, Andy held senior roles with Glanbia Performance Nutrition and Adams Food Ingredients.

As Science in Sport’s group supply chain director Andy will hold international responsibility for the strategic and operational aspects of the PhD and SiS supply chains, including the manufacturing and e-commerce fulfilment operations in Nelson, Lancashire.

He will join the business later this month and be based at the Nelson site.

Science in Sport’s supply chain has evolved significantly during the current year, following the acquisition in December 2018 of the PhD brand.

The new e-commerce fulfilment facility was opened in June this year and the opening of a new powder line to accommodate the insourcing of PhD protein manufacture remains on track to become operational this month.

Science in Sport has identified significant growth opportunities for the group over the next few years, which will be underpinned by robust supply chain management.

Chief executive Stephen Moon said: “I am delighted that Andy Bott is joining Science in Sport in the important role of group supply chain sirector.

“His track record of implementing and driving a global supply footprint for a substantial and rapidly growing online sports nutrition business will add great value in the delivery of our ambition to be the world’s number one premium performance nutrition business.”
