Obituary - Cedric Dal­las

The Poultry Bulletin - - CONTENTS -

It is with great sad­ness that we ad­vise that Cedric Dal­las, a di­rec­tor of The Free Range Chicken Com­pany and Eiken­hof Poul­try Farms, passed away on Satur­day 12th Au­gust af­ter a brave bat­tle against can­cer.

Cedric grew up in Natal and started his ca­reer in the 1970’s with the Natal Parks Board.

He then moved to the poul­try in­dus­try, ini­tially work­ing for Rain­bow for 9 years and there­after for Ton­gaat as Pro­duc­tion Di­rec­tor for many years. In 1992, Cedric joined the Melset­ter Group as Di­rec­tor and CEO of the Poul­try Divi­sion, where he worked un­til his re­tire­ment in 2007. Dur­ing this time, he served on the Egg Or­gan­i­sa­tion of SAPA for many years, and was awarded Hon­orary Life Mem­ber­ship for his ser­vices to the in­dus­try.

Af­ter his re­tire­ment, he con­tin­ued to play an active role and as a provider of wise coun­sel as a non-ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor of The Free Range Chicken Com­pany, the hold­ing com­pany of Eiken­hof Poul­try Farms, Klip­fontein Or­gan­ics and Peak Pul­lets.

In his spare time, Cedric main­tained an active and abid­ing in­ter­est in con­ser­va­tion, re­tain­ing mem­ber­ship of the Game Rangers As­so­ci­a­tion and trav­el­ling sev­eral times a year to spend time in na­ture, pho­tograph­ing and view­ing game in var­i­ous parts of Africa. He also en­joyed run­ning, com­plet­ing sev­eral Com­rades and Two Oceans marathons, as well as cycling.

Cedric will be fondly re­mem­bered and sorely missed by his many friends and in­dus­try col­leagues.

We ex­tend our deep­est sym­pa­thy to his wife Jackie, sons Barry and Bruce and their fam­i­lies, and share their im­mense loss.¡
