Poultry processor targets £100k for Farm Africa charity
Moy Park is aiming to raise £100,000 for Farm Africa in a new three-year charity partnership.
The poultry giant has become a Platinum Sponsor of Farm Africa’s ‘Food for Good’ campaign, which aims to tackle global hunger and support farmers in eastern Africa.
Mike Mullan, Moy Park HR director Europe, said: “We are delighted to announce our partnership with Farm Africa. The charity’s commitment to tackling hunger with projects that empower farmers and equip them with the tools to start businesses and become self-sufficient, is an incredibly worthy cause.”
Moy Park said that, over the next three years, its employees will take part in a variety of fundraising activities, including a trek through some of Ethiopia’s most challenging countryside, mountain climbing, competing in marathons and cycle relays. One Moy Park team member will travel to Tanzania to take part in the Big Beehive Build in the Nou Forest, where they will work alongside the locals to build 90 hives in three days.
Nigel Harris, Farm Africa CEO, said: “We’re delighted that Moy Park has confirmed its long-term partnership to support Farm Africa and the ‘Food for Good’ campaign. Over the past years, the food and hospitality industry has raised an impressive £1 million for Farm Africa and Moy Park has played a significant role in helping reach this total. Moy Park’s aim to raise £100,000 for Farm Africa is a fantastic start to the new Food for Good target of raising £5m that will help to take 70,000 African smallholder farmers and their families out of hunger and poverty, for good.”
