It’s important to be proud of your heritage and we like to support local sports clubs and societies through sponsorship activities. We currently help local lad Liam Glynn in his quest to becoming a top Olympic sailor as well as smaller clubs such as the Comber Boules Society and Comber Rec Youth Football Team. As well as this, we regularly donate our time and Mash Direct Hampers to local fund raising galas.
Finding Top Talent
We work closely with universities providing both work experience and paid internship programmes to help hopeful graduates gain the skills and experience needed to kick-start their career in the food industry.
At Mash Direct, we like to help out local charities as much as we can. We have worked with the mental health charity Mencap for several years, raising awareness and helping to break the stigma attached to mental health issues. Working closely with the charity Fareshare for the last five years has meant that we have been able to donate surplus food (that would otherwise end up in landfill sites!). So far, we have donated over 34 tonnes of veg helping to make over 170,000 meals for vulnerable people in Northern Ireland.
Schools and Education
Regularly running education programmes in conjunction with local schools helps us spread the word about the importance of farming and agriculture. It also gives children the chance to see how vegetables are grown as well as their nutritional benefits, helping to promote a healthy lifestyle.
