Moy Park’s 75 years certainly not paltry!
STAFF at one of Ashbourne’s largest employers have been helping the firm celebrate its 75th anniversary.
Events took place across all of poultry producer Moy Park’s sites, including at the Blenheim Road Industrial Estate, to mark the milestone and, at Ashbourne, a special birthday party was held, which included cake and commemorative gifts.
All employees were entered into a birthday draw, with bosses presenting team members with 75 vouchers, with a top prize of £2,000.
Celebrating the heritage of Moy Park and looking to the future, Chris Kirke, President of Moy Park said: “It’s been a momentous year for Moy Park.
“We reached a major production milestone, producing six million birds per week for the first time in our history, announced a new UK charity partnership with Marie Curie and celebrated internal achievements across our sites. It wouldn’t be a party without a theme, and we have used our 75th birthday to promote our focus on sustainable growth, gifting all staff members with an environmentally friendly, reusable travel mug, branded with our anniversary logo.
“There has been a fantastic buzz to the celebrations and it’s been great to have the all teams come together to mark the occasion,” he added.
