Dunbia heads back to school

Dunbia has teamed up with St Patrick’s Academy in Dungannon to help students pass their exams.

The meat processor’s new product development (NPD) team has tasked four ‘A level’ home economics students with investigating the meat buying habits of consumers as well as developing two new products from their research findings.

They will have access to the company’s Northern Ireland NPD facilities, and can view the production environment to give them a better understanding of the processes involved when developing their new products.

The programme – which ends in March – is managed by Sentinus and operated in conjunction with CAFRE, Food and Drink Sector Skills and industry.
