Dawn Meats wins “Excellence in Health & Safety” Award at the Agribusiness Awards 2017

on 13 November, 2017

Dawn Meats has been recognised with the ‘Excellence in Health & Safety’ award at the 3rd annual Agribusiness Awards in Dublin. We were chosen as a result of our work in raising awareness of food safety, through our annual Food Safety Week.

The Agribusiness Awards celebrate and recognise organisations and individuals who have contributed to Ireland's position as a global leader in the agricultural sector. The awards cover all areas of the agricultural industry including dairy, beef, poultry, beverages, seafood and food processing. 

Commenting on the award, Brian Hyland, Group Food Safety and Quality Director at Dawn Meats said: "We are very pleased to accept this award on behalf of all the team at Dawn Meats who contribute every day to achieving our standards of excellence. Celebrating success in this way recognises Dawn Meats’ ongoing commitment to sustainability.  Food Safety is fundamental to everything we do and is a corner stone of our Group sustainability goals".

During Food Safety Week across our plants, we aimed to raise awareness among team members, customers and suppliers at work and in their home environments on issues such as temperature control, hand-washing, allergens and cross contamination. Over 3,000 information leaflets and 3,000 fridge thermometers were distributed with over 450 people taking part in the UV Hand Wash Challenge.
