Linden Foods to support Ulster Rugby team

Northern Irish meat processor Linden Foods has announced it will be the official meat supplier of meat and poultry to the Ulster Rugby squad for the 2014/2015 season.

Linden Foods, which won Processing Business of the Year at Meat Trades Journal’s Meat and Poultry Processing Awards last year, said it was delighted to launch the partnership.

William Waugh, procurement director at Linden Foods, explained: “On a professional level it is great for Linden Foods to be associated in a supplier capacity with Ulster Rugby.

“We are delighted our products have been chosen to power the performance of the team. On a personal level it’s brilliant, I am a huge Ulster supporter and feel very proud and privileged to launch our new supplier deal. Coming here every Friday night will feel that little bit more satisfying.”

Ulster Rugby head of strength and conditioning Jonathan Davis added: “As we look to explore new initiatives it is important we do so with the best partners. Linden Foods is a valued supplier to the team and joins the already successful supplier companies working with the professional team to achieve the highest levels of performance.”

The processing company is based at Granville Industrial Estate in Dungannon and employs over 900 people. It said that its production strategy was focused on quality, efficiency and innovation, combined with a vision of sustainability that covered raw materials and the importance of reducing its environmental footprint while benefiting the communities within which it interacts.
