Moy Park has teamed up with top local chef Jenny Bristow to raise awareness of Northern Ireland Year of Food and Drink’s August ‘Love NI Meat Month.’

Jenny travelled in Moy Park’s ‘little yellow van’ to Titanic Belfast, the Giant’s Causeway and Ebrington Square in Londonderry to cook specially developed recipes using Moy Park chicken – including the award-winning Roast in the Bag range, which was named one of the winners in our fantastic GrowMakeEatDrink Awards last week.

Jenny’s recipes formed a series of videos which will be revealed on Moy Park’s social media channels during this month’s ‘Meat Month’, and show consumers step-by-step how to create dishes using Moy Park chicken.

Moy Park brand marketing manager Briege Finnegan explains: “Moy Park is a huge supporter of the NI Year of Food and Drink, and we are so excited that August was ‘Meat Month’.

“We really wanted to do something different for the public to show how they could get involved, and our how-to videos with Jenny were the perfect way to do this. The recipes were designed to showcase the versatility of our chicken, from an exotic Thai Green Chicken Curry to a ‘Finn McCool’ sandwich!

“A big thank you to Jenny for helping us celebrate ‘Meat Month’!”

Like the rest of the award winners named in this special supplement, Moy Park has been instrumental in producing top quality food, and as such, was awarded the accolade of Best Innovative Food / Drink Product, for its special Good Kitchen Roast in the Bag range.

The GrowMakeEatDrink Awards is the first major event to be branded under all the Johnston Press titles, after being launched three months ago.

And last Thursday night (August 11), at a star-studded event at the Ramada Plaza in Belfast, those awards were presented to some of Province’s most deserving participants in this sector.

Group Editor William Allen explained that the company wanted to focus on the success of Northern Ireland in many fields.

He said: “It’s quite a special year in many ways and we want to play a part in helping promote all that is good and wholesome and special about this part of the world.”
