Supporting local producers is very important. In doing so we sustain jobs, help our economy and encourage producers to keep providing and creating great products. This is something Spar Northern Ireland do very well.
Talking to the Henderson Group’s Fresh Food Director, Neal Kelly, I discovered, that Spar's
'Summer eating range this season is 100% sourced from farmers and growers in Northern Ireland, from the farms of Ballyclare to the lush grounds of Killinchy; all our meat, poultry, sausages, salads and fresh accompaniments are 100% made in Northern Ireland.”
The Henderson Group works with suppliers including Willowbrook Foods in Killinchy, Fred C Robinson in Ballyclare, Rockvale Poultry in County Armagh, Avondale Foods in Craigavon, and Around Noon in Newry.
This is good news! As our support of the local Agri-Food industry in Northern Ireland, makes a positive and significant difference to the lives of people who work really hard in this sector.
I love to BBQ, as you will well know, and serving on my table food that has been grown and harvested in Northern Ireland, is one of my greatest pleasures.
That's it for now ...
