A local company has been named as one of Northern Ireland’s top SPAR suppliers at the Balmoral Show, thanks to its environmentally friendly practices.
K & G McAtamney Butchery and Deli, supplies SPAR exclusively with a range of tray packed, ready to cook beef, lamb, pork and poultry.
The Henderson Group, owners of the SPAR franchise in Northern Ireland and a platinum sponsor of the Balmoral Show, held the SPAR Local Suppliers’ Awards to mark the excellent produce, practices and ranges of the companies it works with.
K & G McAtamney won the Tomorrow Matters award, named after the Henderson Group’s own CSR strategy - focussed on People, Planet and Place - for the company which gives back to their own community, the environment and/or encourages team development.
Judges were impressed with McAtamney’s new purpose built, state-of-the-art 18,000 sq.ft. factory in Ballymena which has a full heat recovery system and plans for a biomass boiler.
The workforce has doubled to almost 70, with volumes being supplied to the Henderson Group continuing to increase.
