What our people say

“I’ve been at ABP for almost 11 years. Today I’m Group Technical Manager. My time here has pushed me through boundaries I didn’t know I had. My advice to anyone joining the business would be to accept the challenges that you face so that you can enjoy the satisfaction that comes from overcoming them.”

Edel McElwain, Group Technical Auditor at ABP Food Group

“Because the business is always growing and diversifying, there’s always a niche for a new person joining the company, as long as you’re ready to learn and work hard. We show you each step of the process, and by using the experience of mentors we’ll help to develop your skills for the future.”

Brenda Halpenny, Health & Safety Manager at ABP Ireland

“I joined ABP in 2002, straight after graduating from UCD with a degree in Agricultural Science. My advice to anyone considering joining the business would be to be persistent, work hard and be willing to learn new things. At ABP we genuinely value our people – it’s a great working environment.”
