hupkes henk cropOn Sunday November 25, 2018 the Dutch branch of the WPSA lost her charismatic member Henk Hupkes. Henk started his poultry career at Meyn Food Processing Technology B.V. in 1982: his graduation in Mechanical Engineering from the Technical University Delft provided a good basis for his diverse tasks. Henk provided an indispensable bridge between a poultry processing equipment manufacturer and the scientific world. In 1982 became member of WPSA NL and he was member of the Board of WPSA NL from 1986 to 1992. He was member of the organizing committee of the successful WPC 1992 in Amsterdam, after which he became member and secretary of the Board of the Foundation for Promoting Poultry Science until his death in November 2018. From 1982 to 2010 he attended about all WPC’s and EPC’s, as well as the symposia of Working Group 5 (Poultry Meat). In all cases his presence was undeniable due to his eagerness to learn, his friendly and optimistic attitude, and his laughter. Since 2015 Henk suffered from cancer, a battle he couldn’t win. He finally lost the battle at the age of 71 years. Henk is badly missed by his loved ones and his many friends inside and outside the W PSA. He is remembered with respect, warmth and gratitude.
