Irish chicken producer Manor Farm was named Food Producer of the Year at the Agribusiness Awards. The competition received more than 200 entries from participating companies throughout Ireland. The chicken producer’s commitment to innovation and sustainability were the two major themes in winning the prestigious award.

Vincent Carton, Managing Director of Manor Farm, praises ” the dedication and commitment of the team at Manor Farm in helping to drive the company’s business values of innovation and sustainability.”

The agri food sector in Ireland accounts for more than 7% of Ireland’s GDP according to the CSO. Manor Farm is an important contributor to the agri-food sector in Ireland and to the local economy. Based in Shercock, Co. Cavan, the family owned company employs more than 800 people, and a further 1,000 indirectly, from farmers growing wheat and other grains to suppliers.

Ireland has one of the highest consumption rates of poultry consumption in Europe. The consumption of poultry accounts for one third of the nation’s total meat consumption.

Manor Farm is a 100% Irish and family owned food producing business. The Carton family has been producing Irish chicken since the late 18th Century.   All of Manor Farm’s chickens are produced in Ireland and are fully traceable. Manor Farm is a member and firm supporter of Bord Bia’s Origin Green programme. The producer’s commitment to sustainability focuses on reducing emissions to air, water and land; reducing waste; and using energy and resources efficiently.
