Speaking about the partnership, RUAS chief executive, Alan Crowe said: “We are thrilled to welcome Fane Valley on board as a new Platinum Sponsor for this year’s Balmoral Show, as a leading agricultural supplier and agri–food processor they are clearly a great fit as a partner for Northern Ireland’s leading agri–food Show.”
Trevor Lockhart, Fane Valley Group chief executive added: ‘We are very excited to announce our new platinum sponsorship with Balmoral Show, especially in its 150th anniversary year. Balmoral’s mission to promote Northern Ireland agriculture and all things within a thriving agri–food sector runs parallel with the values of Fane Valley and our position as a leading agricultural supplier and innovative agri–food processor.
“Fane Valley was founded in 1903, the following year the RUAS was honoured with a Royal Title and became the Royal Ulster Agricultural Society. So, both organisations share a long history in Northern Ireland’s largest industry.‘
He continued: “It is extremely positive that both the RUAS and Fane Valley are also investing for the future. The transition of Balmoral Show to Balmoral Park has been a great success and as a farming co–operative we are proud to support the ongoing development efforts. Fane Valley is also moving forward with further investments across its activities as a major distributor of farm supplies and equipment and a manufacturer of quality, high performance animal feeds.
“Over the next three years we aim to work closely with the RUAS to add value to our partnership and reinforce our commitment to the local farming community. At this year’s event Fane Valley will be associated with a range of activities including sponsorship of a number of dairy, beef and sheep classes.’
The 2018 Balmoral Show runs from Wednesday, May 16 – Saturday, May 19.
