Industry Bursaries for Loughry Food Students

At the recent Food Bursary Awards ceremony at Loughry Campus, seventeen food students from Loughry’s higher education degree courses were presented with the industry bursaries they have secured this academic year.  This year the sponsors that have shown their appreciation of the future talent that Loughry is developing include: ABP Food Group, Bank of Ireland, Cookstown-Karro Group, Danske Bank, Dunbia, Fane Valley/Linden Foods, First Trust Bank, Glanbia Cheese Ltd, Irish Farmers Journal, LacPatrick Co-op, Moy Park Ltd, Multi Packaging Solutions, Northern Ireland Food and Drink Association (NIFDA), Tyrone Farming Society, Ulster Bank and Willowbrook Fine Foods.  They offered bursaries which were valued between £1,000 and £3,000, worth in the region of £23,000.

Speaking at the event Mr Norman Fulton, Deputy Secretary, DAERA praised the companies and organisations who demonstrated their support for the students, saying: “These companies have shown their commitment to investing in the future development of the Agri-food industry by supporting students through their education programmes with financial assistance and offering work placement opportunities.”

Higher education is often expensive for students and their families and CAFRE is delighted that the Agri-food industry is committed to supporting our young managers and leaders of the future through the provision of bursaries.
