Designed to support businesses that are committed to integrating corporate responsibility into they way they do business, CORE enables firms to map corporate responsibility activity and benchmark it against other organisations, all independently verified by an external assessor.
This is the first time Moy Park has achieved this particular accolade, having first achieved Standard CORE recognition in 2017. The judging panel highlighted Moy Park’s approach to sustainability, investment in training opportunities for employees and passion for corporate responsibility across the business.
“Corporate responsibility is something we take very seriously at Moy Park and we work closely with our customers, suppliers and team members to ensure we continue to behave as a responsible company. Embedded in our local communities and committed to industry leading operating processes and facilities, we are proud of our work across the business in this area, from our sustainability commitments to charity initiatives such as our £1million Community Support Fund.
“Having previously achieved Standard CORE accreditation, we are delighted to now be recognised at Silver level. We always strive to do better, and will continue our work to build on our reputation as leaders in corporate responsibility within the food industry.”
Dr Lisa McIlvenna, Deputy Managing Director, BITC NI said:
“By achieving CORE at Silver Level, Moy Park is once again demonstrating its leadership in responsible and sustainable business. The company has held itself to external scrutiny, seeking to identify areas of strength and opportunities for improvement. We are delighted that Moy Park's excellent performance and commitment to responsible business has been recognised with this certification”
