GLANBIA’S collaboration with Barrettstown Camp was recognised by the Chambers of Commerce of Ireland when the organisation was presented with the ‘Good Neighbour Award for Large Indigenous Companies’ at the Chambers CSR Awards in Dublin.
Minister for the Environment, Phil Hogan presented the Awards and congratulated Glanbia on its “unique partnership with Barretstown, providing corporate donations, employee fundraising and a cause-related marketing campaign.”
The Group was represented at the Awards by Chairman, Liam Herlihy and HR and Operations Development Director, Brian Phelan. Glanbia employee Champions – the people who spearhead employee fundraising - were represented by Marie Langton (Kilkenny), Geraldine Somerville (Dublin) and Mary Keegan (Portlaoise).
Accepting the specially commissioned Tipperary crystal trophy, Brian Phelan thanked the Chambers for honouring Glanbia, and by so doing, recognising the commitment made by the business and individual employees to this most worthwhile project.
“To be recognised with this award is very encouraging for the entire Glanbia organisation and underpins our commitment to the corporate social responsibility agenda. Glanbia has worked closely with Barrettstown to build a strong, meaningful relationship over the past three years and this award is a tribute to the Group Champions, the Consumer Products team and all employees within Glanbia Ireland who have made significant contributions to this very worthwhile charity over that period.
Glanbia employees are making a difference in the community and in people’s lives and they can be proud that their contribution has been recognised by the Chambers .”
