Moy Park Awarded Environmental Accolade

24 April 2013

UK - Moy Park, processor of fresh, locally farmed chicken in the UK and part of Marfrig Group, has won the ‘Environmental Initiative of the Year Award’ at the Meat Trades Journal ‘Meat & Poultry Processing Awards 2013.’

The environmental award is contested by leading businesses across the industry and rewards excellence and innovation in driving forward environmental improvements.

Moy Park HR and Business Improvement Director Mike Mullan commented,

“We are thrilled to have won the Environmental Initiative of the Year Award. The judges recognised our huge reduction in waste sent to landfill from 6,600T in 2010 to 225T in 2012, which now means an incredible 96 per cent of Moy Park’s waste is diverted away from landfill.

“This success is driven by our extensive environmental programme, which is professionally managed by the teams at each main production site and at our mills, hatcheries and farms.”
