ABP group extends Balmoral support
Irish meat giant ABP food group has announced its continued sponsorship at this year's Balmoral Show.
The company, which has a major factory in Newry, will now sponsor the Texel, Suffolk and Beltex sheep classes, as well as the overall Sheep Championship.
It's ABP's fourth year as a platinum sponsor of the eagerly-awaited agricultural show, which takes place from May 11 to 13 at Balmoral Park.
Gerry Mellotte, a manager at ABP, joined Jenny McNeill of show organiser the Royal Ulster Agricultural Society (RUAS) to announce its extended involvement.
