Happy Christmas to All.
I would like to take this chance to wish all our customers, staff and suppliers a very happy Christmas and prosperous New Year for 2014. 2013 has been a great year for Lakeview Farm Meats and it’s only right to say thank-you, to all those who made it possible, from our award winning customers/ suppliers to our staff who helped make it all possible.
Below are just a few of the many highlights of 2013:
- Following on from the Horse Beef scandal, in February LVFM was in the news regarding out great trace ability system which can trace our Beef and Lamb from the day an animal is born till the day we deliver it to our customers. The animal selected, was traced within minutes from Conn Williamsons farm in Glenavy to the butchers shop, both of whom were interviewed by BBC Newsline. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-northern-ireland-21453618
- In April Conn was awarded the local farmer of the year. Conn is a widely respected in the industry both at home and as far away as New Zealand where he has made several trips to (including many places in-between). Conn over the years, has reared award winning Belgium Blue Cattle, both pedigree and commercial cattle as well as judging numerous prestigious cattle shows throughout the United Kingdom and Ireland. Lakeview Farm Meats Ltd has always been thankful to have so many great suppliers like Conn literally on our doorstep, relationships we wish to continually build over the many years to come.
- Over the year we have won many new customers and continually improved our facility, in terms of efficiency and more importantly quality at Lakeview Farm Meats. We don’t aim to be the biggest but certainly the best at what we do.
- Christmas Shows – As the year comes to a close, and Christmas trees are hoisted in to position laiddened with decorations, the great Christmas Cattle shows – Allams and Ballymena come around for another year.
It’s been another great close to the year for Lakeview Farm Meats with many of the class champions and supreme champions of both having been processed at Lakeview Farm Meats. With great support from our customers, who bought great cattle and sheep at these great shows, it has been another record year, with record numbers of cattle and sheep processed to ensure our customers have only the finest Beef and Lamb for Christmas.
To finish-up, I would like to thank everyone for their support and I look forward to working with everyone, in what should hopefully be a prosperous 2014 for all.
