Moy Park gains high ranking for corporate responsibility

For the second year, Moy Park has achieved three stars on the Business in the Community’s Corporate Responsibility (CR) Index, which measures responsible business practice.

The CR Index survey was developed in 2002 by business leaders and provides “a robust tool to help companies systematically measure, manage and integrate responsible business practice”, according to Business in the Community.

In 2013 Moy Park was the first poultry business in the UK to be listed on the CR Index.

Mike Mullan, Moy Park HR director Europe, said the company was honoured to receive three stars: “Moy Park has been involved with Business in the Community for a number of years and we are honoured to be recognised for our corporate responsibility in two of their initiatives.

“Since we were first recognised in the CR Index back in 2013, Business in the Community has continued to set tough assessment criteria for those wishing to be included, so we are delighted that Moy Park has been awarded an impressive ‘3 Star’ ranking once again.

“Moy Park works closely with customers, suppliers, employees and the local community to ensure that we not only meet – but exceed – our responsibilities as a business. Corporate responsibility is placed at the very core of Moy Park and we are committed to industry-leading operating processes and facilities. We remain the only company from the UK-wide poultry industry to be recognised in the prestigious CR Index ranking,” Mullan concluded.

Moy Park has also received a Dairy Crest Rural Action Award by Business in the Community, for its commitment “to continual and positive rural impact”, as well as efforts in supporting and developing youth employment, the company reported.
