Finnebrogue plays an active role in supporting its people. Through our learning and development programmes, we are addressing education and training gaps. Through our health and wellbeing strategy, we are providing a hand up rather than a hand out. And we have improved our policies, so they raise awareness of and address diversity, inclusion and modern slavery.

Finnebrogue employs 1200 people and we wanted to help ease cost-of-living pressures. The Food Shack is open for a few hours each day so that all employees have the opportunity to collect their weekly food bundle which has a value of around £25 per bundle. Products include bacon, sausage, burgers and plant-based products.
Finnebrogue has a clear focus on supporting the emotional, physical, and financial wellbeing of employees. A monthly calendar of events and a number of clubs & societies help to engage employees, while additional benefits of subsidised canteen, car and bike purchase scheme, healthcare insurance, counselling services and financial health checks provide practical support.
The Denis Lynn Scholarship for Sustainable Food Innovation is a generous bursary of £20,000 towards tuition fees and living expenses for a student on the Advanced Food Safety Masters degree, within the School of Biological Sciences and Institute for Global Food Security (IGFS), at Queen’s University Belfast.
The award will also include an internship at Finnebrogue, Foundation Earth; and another at an internationally renowned food producer.
