Industry First for Moy Park17 April 2013
UK - Poultry processor, Moy Park is the first company in the poultry industry to be recognised in the UK’s Corporate Responsibility Index (CR Index), the UK’s leading and most in-depth voluntary benchmark of corporate responsibility assessed by Business in the Community.
The ranking is a milestone for the business, only granted to select companies who demonstrate exceptional achievement in corporate responsibility.
The UK CR Index is recognised worldwide and helps companies measure and manage all aspects of their social and environmental performance, shape how they integrate and improve corporate responsibility throughout their business operations and benchmark themselves against competitors.
Moy Park was announced as a Bronze company, which means the business was able to show effective stakeholder engagement, effective processes and reliable data - demonstrating both responsible business management and performance improvement.
Mike Mullan, Moy Park Human Resources and Business Improvement Director said: “We are really delighted to have been recognised for our achievements in corporate responsibility. Our ranking on the CR Index is the latest accolade to acknowledge Moy Park’s responsible approach to business.
“It is not only a first for a Northern Irish business but also a first for the UK’s poultry industry.
“I am really proud of everyone in the Moy Park team for their dedication, hard work and for maintaining such high standards to ensure we continue to lead the way in the industry.
“We look forward to building on this achievement as we continue to implement and invest in sustainable business practises.”
