Speaking at the event, Dale Farm Group Chief Executive Nick Whelan said:

"The past year was not without significant challenge, with a pandemic, major political developments and ongoing cost pressures being felt throughout the food chain.

"Despite these headwinds, Dale Farm had a solid year thanks to the dedication and skill of our people. This was the year we rebranded Dale Farm and secured significant supply contracts. We face the year ahead with a sense of optimism and determination to best support our farmers and further grow our business. We thank all our members for their ongoing hard work and commitment to the cooperative."
