Linden Foods & Marks & Spencer are jointly funding CAFRE Second Year Agriculture Degree Students with an in-depth understanding of how an Agri-food supply chain operates.
33 students from Greenmount with their lecture’s Dr Kevin Henry & Ian Mc Maw recently visited both the Primal Site & Retail Site to see how the supply chains operates after the livestock leaves the farm gate.
Almost all of these students have never seen what happens to their livestock after the farm gate. Many of them commented on how organised and efficient the processing plant operated.
Early next year the students will have the opportunity to visit a leading Marks & Spencer Store and study the operations of a major retail food outlet in a consumers originated sector.
