Vision of Moy Park chief is an inspiration to us all
Janet McCollum, chief executive of Moy Park, was the deserved recipient of a Lifetime Achievement award at this newspaper's Business Awards last night. As head of one of Northern Ireland's blue chip companies she is a superb ambassador for the province's agri-food sector which is so important to the local economy.
Moy Park's growth from a small farming business in Moygashel in 1943 to a multi-national company employing thousands shows that with vision, product innovation and expert leadership it is possible for a locally-based firm to make a global impact.
Moy Park is not just a successful company but a brand of excellence in its field.
