Moy Park, one of the UK’s top food manufacturers, has been recognised for its leadership in sustainability and environmental performance at the recent KFC Supplier Awards.
The leading food company was presented with the prestigious Environmental Award which is conferred to the KFC supplier that demonstrates outstanding environmental commitment.
KFC was particularly impressed that Moy Park has achieved zero waste to landfill status across all 14 of its manufacturing sites and its agricultural base.
The company was also commended for investing significant capital in the very latest renewable biomass technology across its farming base.
KFC also noted that Moy Park was the first UK poultry company to be acknowledged in the UK’s Corporate Responsibility Index – the UK’s leading and most in-depth voluntary benchmark of corporate responsibility.
Ian Hyland, Director of Sales-Foodservice, Moy Park, said: “We’re delighted that KFC has rewarded Moy Park’s commitment to superior environmental performance with this accolade. Our sustainability agenda focuses not just on the environment, but also on customers, suppliers, workplace and the community – similar to the ethos and values of KFC. The entire team at Moy Park is committed to advancing our leadership in these areas with 2015 set to be a very exciting year for the company as we continually invest in our operations and factories.”
