Mike Mullan, Moy Park’s HR director Europe, commented: “We are delighted to have received this great accolade once again. It is fantastic for Moy Park to sit among leading businesses from across the UK and the rest of the world. At Moy Park we are committed to continually driving forward health and safety practices for our employees and to maintaining the very highest standards. We are honoured that these high standards have been acknowledged with this prestigious award.”

The awards, run by the British Safety Council, are in their 57th year.

Neal Stone, acting chief executive of the British Safety Council, congratulated Moy Park on its success. Stone said: “Awards have an important role to play in shining a light on those employers who are taking sensible and effective steps to ensure the health, safety and welfare of their workers, celebrating their efforts and encouraging other businesses everywhere.

“The International Safety Awards rightly reflect the importance of aiming for good standards of health and safety at work. Moy Park’s Convenience Business Unit should rightly be proud of its achievement.”
