Moy Park’s 75 years cer­tainly not pal­try!

Ashbourne News Telegraph - - BUSINESS -

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.
