Moy Park and Young Enterprise Inspire Future Entrepreneurs

Northern Ireland’s leading business education charity, Young Enterprise NI, have teamed up with top food industry leader Moy Park Ltd to inspire ‘Primary six pupils’ from schools across the Craigavon area to get involved in business and enterprise.

The ‘Moy Park Challenge’ sees Young Enterprise deliver an entrepreneurship masterclass to P6 pupils, who participated in an interactive, business-related competition designed to inspire their creativity and entrepreneurial skills. As part of the Challenge young people formulate business plans, as well as testing their marketing skills by producing a poster for Moy Park products.

The Young Enterprise Moy Park Challenge is in its thirteenth successful year, including schools from the Craigavon and surrounding area. Pupils attended from Carrick Primary School, Portadown Integrated Primary School and St John the Baptist Primary School.

Mary Daly at Moy Park, commented on the charity’s partnership with Young Enterprise, ‘Moy Park is always keen to support our local communities, and this venture is a great opportunity to engage with young people in such a positive and productive way. We are delighted to be working with Young Enterprise on the Moy Park Challenge again. Not only does it help our local children understand the role that companies such as ours play in our communities, but we believe it provides a great opportunity to show them how business works and the vast range of interesting and rewarding careers available.’

Carol Fitzsimons, Chief Executive at Young Enterprise Northern Ireland, commented: ‘We are delighted once again to partner with Moy Park in delivering this programme. It is fantastic to see such a successful local business encouraging innovation and would hope that the competition will inspire the next generation of young entrepreneurs, and help them consider self-employment as a viable career option.’

Young Enterprise NI is a charity operating with the support of local businesses including Moy Park. The charity delivers practical business education programmes more than 100,000 young people each year in Northern Ireland.
