Alison, who joined Moy Park’s graduate management training programme in August 2013, was recognised for her achievement at a prestigious awards ceremony held recently at the House of Lords in London. Alison sat her CIEH level 4 in Food Hygiene Safety Management for Manufacturing at the Loughry Campus of the College of Agriculture, Food and Rural Enterprise (CAFRE) in March 2014. She also holds a degree in BSc (Hons) Food Quality, Safety and Nutrition with Professional Studies from Queen’s University, Belfast. A total of 35 graduates joined Moy Park’s Graduate Training Programme in 2013/2014, all of whom are currently undergoing a bespoke management development programme designed to arm them with the skills necessary to become future leaders. This programme involves training courses such as those provided by CIEH, as well as the opportunity to work across different areas of the business. Joanna Colvin, Director of Food Development from Moy Park said: “This is an excellent achievement by Alison and is testament to her hard work and dedication. It is also an extremely positive reflection on the lecturers at Loughry College, who were also congratulated at the awards for their commitment to excellence. “We have a very strong culture of food safety at Moy Park and we build upon this with ongoing training, education and personal development programmes to create competent, high performing individuals and teams. We are delighted that Alison has been rewarded for her efforts and we have no doubt that she has an extremely bright future ahead of her,” Joanna concluded.
