Moy Park poultry suppliers join prestigious club
Published:  05 October, 2015

A selection of Northern Irish farmers who supply to Moy Park have been rewarded for their hard work. 

The nine farmers have been recognised by Aviagen at a special awards ceremony for their high level of production standards.

International broiler breeder company Aviagen has welcomed the chosen Moy Park poultry suppliers to their esteemed ‘Ross 400 Club’, which acknowledges and rewards broiler farmers who have achieved a European Efficiency Factor (EPEF) of 400 and over with their flock.

In the UK, less than 5% of poultry flocks have obtained this level.

“We are thrilled that so many of our farmers are now members of the prestigious ‘Ross 400 Club’,” said John Harrison, NI broiler manager for Moy Park. He explained that the dedication of Moy Park and its poultry farmers ensured they delivered the best possible goods to the market.

“Winning this award means our farmers are operating to world-class standards across every level of poultry production – from animal health and welfare to operational effectiveness. This, coupled with Moy Park’s industry-leading farming and operational facilities, means we are ensuring that consumers are receiving the highest-quality products.”

Stuart Thomson, Aviagen's technical services manager, commented on the new members: "The Ross 400 Club recognises the hard work that farmers put into their broiler flocks. We’re so pleased to welcome nine more winners to the Club; they are all a real credit to their stockmanship and we appreciate their commitment to achieving best performance from their Ross flocks.”
