Over 1,000 beef farmers involved in the Irish Angus Beef Producers group recently enjoyed a celebratory barbecue on the farm of Tony and Margaret O’Mahony at Carey’s Cross, Bandon, Co Cork, to mark 10 years of producing premium beef for the ABP food group.
ABP’s Larry Goodman and his son, Laurence, and their families joined the directors of the Irish Angus Producer Group and ABP executives Finbarr McDonnell and Paul Finnerty at the event, which highlighted the emergence of Certified Irish Angus as a premier product on Irish and European supermarket shelves.
Certified Irish Angus is processed by ABP at its plant in Bandon and is marketed across Ireland and Europe’s high end retailers and food service outlets.
The Irish Angus Producers’ Group have shown their commitment to the product by implementing exacting breeding programmes and tailoring their production systems to ensure correct specifications are adhered to, and consistent delivery is maintained.
Michael Donoghue, of Tesco Ireland, said Tesco have a ‘high regard’ for Certified Irish Angus. John Kelleher, of ABP, said the relationship between the ABP food group and the Irish Angus Producer Group was a fundamental part of the company’s success story in Bandon.
Charles Smith, on behalf of Irish Angus Producer Group, recognised the commitment made by the ABP food group over the last 10 years.
