Moy Park has teamed up with Ulster Rugby for the upcoming 2015/2016 season as official poultry supplier to the squad.

The food company will supply the rugby team with locally sourced chicken for the players to enjoy as part of their training regime, it says.

Paul Burch, Moy Park Director of Sales said that chicken is a healthy and nutritious source of protein and is ideal for top sports people like the Ulster Rugby team.

“Ulster Rugby is one of the leading sporting organisations in Northern Ireland and we are thrilled to be an official supplier for the 2015/16 season.

“Like Ulster Rugby, Moy Park is focused on quality, teamwork and excellence in everything we do – so this partnership is the perfect fit.” he said.

Phillip Polack, Ulster Rugby Business Development Manager said that Ulster Rugby is committed to improving the support of its players at professional level and within our affiliated clubs and schools each season.

“We do this in a number of ways including our nutrition programme, which aims to provide the players with best quality products possible and the most accurate nutritional advice, allowing the player to prepare for and recover from playing and training at an optimum level.

“Moy Park, as a leading global poultry brand and a great supporter of local sport, is a partner that shares our values and vision and we are very much looking forward to developing the relationship with Paul and the company over the coming season,” Polack said.
