‘Horizon’ is the first collaborative scheme of its kind in Northern Ireland

 

 

Two of Northern Ireland’s major agri-food businesses, Dale Farm and ABP, have joined forces to launch an initiative aimed at building a more sustainable market for dairy beef.

‘Horizon’ is the first collaborative scheme of its kind in Northern Ireland and will provide a guaranteed market for selectively bred dairy calves from Dale Farm members through the ABP supply chain.

Underpinned by leading genetic research from ABP’s R&D farms across the UK and Ireland, Horizon will seek to respond to the increasing market demand for quality Northern Irish beef, sourced securely, within a shorter supply chain and with a reduced carbon footprint.

ABP and Dale Farm have built Horizon around environmental sustainability, product quality and farm-to-fork traceability, with a support structure provided to all participants to ensure high standards are adhered to.
