Testimonial – World Angus Forum 2017 Official Partner: M&S


With people travelling to our shores from all over the world, the World Angus Forum 2017 is set to be one of the biggest and best to date. A major part in putting on these events is the tremendous support we receive from our official partners.

The Society has had a strong relationship with Marks & Spencer for many years and we’re delighted to have them as a premier partner at this year’s World Angus Forum event.

Steve McLean, Head of Agriculture and Fisheries Sourcing at Marks & Spencer said the following:

“We are firmly committed to the Aberdeen-Angus breed and welcome the opportunity to work with the Society to highlight the breed in its homeland through our participation in the World Angus Forum.

“Having been the first retailer in the UK to develop a premium brand for beef, Marks & Spencer sees its ongoing relationship with the Society as a long-term partnership. We are particularly enthusiastic about the concept of the Forum Conference. Breeders and consumers are at extreme ends of the supply chain, yet both have a huge influence on each other. In starting with the consumer and working back to the farm, the conference aims to inform delegates of where consumer and retail trends are heading, to focus the direction of sustainable beef cattle production systems.’’

The Aberdeen-Angus Cattle Society would like to thank the team at Marks & Spencer for their continued support, and we look forward to welcoming you to the World Angus Forum in the summer. The future is bright for Aberdeen-Angus breeding and beef production, and we’re excited to keep building on this great relationship to bring benefit to all involved.
