Moy Park’s Chicken Run initiative, which saw the company take to the road, delivering its products to doorsteps across Northern Ireland, has also championed retail heroes through a partnership with Food Force Ireland.
Ireland’s number one chicken brand requested nominations for store colleagues who have gone above and beyond or shown extraordinary dedication and commitment over recent months.
“The past few months have been extremely challenging for everyone in the food Industry -which includes frontline retail staff,” said Ellen Wright, Moy Park brand marketing. “We wanted to say a big thank you to the team at Food Force Ireland by giving colleagues the opportunity to receive a free box filled with Moy Park Chicken goodies as a small token of recognition for their hard work and dedication.
“We received so many nominations – there are so many local food heroes all over Northern Ireland. One of our favourites was Marisa Quinn who was nominated by Gavin Emerson, Emerson’s Armagh who praised Marisa for working tirelessly and running the store almost single-handedly during lockdown.”
Debra Johnston, Food Force Ireland trading controller, said: “I am very pleased to have worked with Moy Park with this wonderful initiative which is rewarding some members from our stores across the group.
“This pandemic has brought so many challenges to everyone but particularly to the entire food supply chain. I have never been prouder to be associated with so many hard-working dedicated people who have all gone the extra mile. I would also like to mention the owners/members of FFI. They have demonstrated such leadership, concern and professionalism.”
