2016 marks the 40th year in business for Dunbia and the company are using the Balmoral Show to mark to occasion.

Over the three days of the Show, Dunbia founders, Jim and Jack Dobson, together with their Agricultural staff, will be on hand to meet their suppliers and customers to thank them for their support over the years.

“Key to Dunbia’s success has been the loyalty shown to us by our customers and suppliers, many of whom have been with us from the very beginning,” according to Jack Dobson, Dunbia’s Executive Director. “It typifies the partnership approach which we have taken throughout our business and it is fitting that we can celebrate with them at the Balmoral Show.”

Dunbia enjoys long-term relationships with many of Europe’s largest retailers and works closely with them to integrate the supply chain and create a sustainable and profitable agricultural industry.

Jim Dobson, Dunbia Chief Executive, stated “At Dunbia, we are very proud of our customer relationships, many of which have been in existence for years.  One of our longest serving retail customers is The Co-operative Food Group with whom we will mark 30 years of business this year.  We are delighted to host a joint reception with them at the Balmoral Show where we will outline some of our joint successes over the years and look forward to many more years of a successful partnership.”

Dunbia Brand Ambassador, international rugby star and fellow farmer, Rory Best will be on the Dunbia Stand during the Show to meet farmers and share farming and rugby stories.  “Dunbia’s stand is going to be a hive of activity during the Balmoral Show,” concludes Karen Birnie, Marketing & Communications Manager, Dunbia.  “We are looking forward to catching up with our existing suppliers and extend a warm welcome to potential new suppliers to come along and meet our agricultural team.”
