Dunbia gets royal approval for Queen’s birthday
Published:  22 June, 2016

Leading Northern Irish meat processor, Dunbia, has appeared in the official commemorative publication for the Queen’s 90th Birthday Celebrations, taking place at Windsor this year. 

Publisher St James’s House produced an official commemorative album for the landmark event. It is the only publication sanctioned and endorsed by the organisers.

“Our commemorative album will be presented as a gift to VVIP and VIP guests at each of the four evenings,” commented Richard Freed, chief executive of St James’s House. “Copies of the book will also be distributed to key figures and organisations around the world, including heads of state, ambassadors and leaders of industry.”

The publication also shows a selection of organisations from the UK and Commonwealth from backgrounds in educational, cultural, social, technological and business fields.

In the area of Industry Excellence, Dunbia has been selected to appear.

“Dunbia is one of the largest meat processors in Europe, and we were approached by publisher St James’s House with an invitation to appear in the event’s official commemorative album,” said Jim Dobson, chief executive officer at Dunbia.

“We were invited based on our good editorial fit for the project, and it’s a great honour to be part of this historic celebration.”

After a £12 million investment in modern facilities in its Llanybydder factory, Dunbia is now the largest processor of lamb in the UK. The Northern Irish company has strong links with a number of charities that the royal family support.
