Cow & Gate honours its long-serving employees

LONG SERVING workers with Cow & Gate were rewarded for their loyalty last Friday at the annual staff party in Slaney Manor.

Danone Baby Nutrition, or Cow & Gate as it's better known in Wexford, manufactures instant milk formula at its facility beside Wexford Creamery on the Rosslare Road.

On Friday evening staff were met by fire eaters at Slaney Manor, where they were served canapés before a number of presentations were made.

The thriving business also makes Cow &Gate and Aptamil for Ireland, the UK and European markets.

Staff who have reached milestones of 20, 25 and 30 years service with the company were honoured on the night, and each were cheered on by their colleagues as they received their gifts, following a lovely buffet meal in the hotel.

A number of retired staff, who had left the company in recent years, also returned to join the party.

Music on the night was supplied by big band 'Some Like it Hot', and a disco followed.

"These events are such a great way to thank our staff for their contribution through the year, to have the opportunity to come together to share our achievements, and to create a good team spirit among everyone. We are delighted so many of our current and retired employees come along to enjoy the night" commented Alexandre Grillet, the Site Director. The party lasted long into the early hours and everyone enjoyed a great night.
