Spalding-based meat producer Dalehead Foods has a good mark against its names after success in the 2014 Responsible Business Awards.

Dalehead Foods, which has a production site in Fulney Lane, was given a Big Tick for its efforts in making a positive difference environmentally and in the community.

The awards are run by the charity Business in the Community and Dalehead Foods was recognised for its Aiming to Support and Promote Young People in the Rural Environment programme (ASPYRE) which seeks to educate youngsters about careers in the agricutural and food production sectors.

Joanne Collins, divisional human resources manager for Dalehead Foods, said: “We were delighted to gain a Big Tick Rural Action Award in 2013 for our work in informing young people about the agriculture and food production industries.

“The latest reaccreditation is great encouragement for us to continue our work and add to the 500 young people who have already benefited from our ASPYRE programme.”

Stephen Howard, chief executive of Business in the Community, said: “I congratulate Dalehead Foods on its Big Tick reaccreditation, a powerful symbol of business doing more to bring about change.”
