Home Economics Trip to McKees Butchers
On Tuesday September 30th Year 13 and 14 Home Economics students visited McKees Butchers' Maghera. McKees are manufacturers of high quality gourmet pies, ready meals such as lasagne, soup, stew, salads, prepared vegetables and family butchers. Only the best quality ingredients and fillings are used by the company to produce a full range of products to suit all tastes. The products are all produced in a state of the art facility to extremely high standards. Students had the opportunity to tour this facility under the expert guidance of its' proud owner Mr George McKee.
This visit provided students with an interesting and informative look at the manufacture, processing and production of the diverse range of products McKees produce. Students had the opportunity to observe and participate in a range of demonstrations illustrating the various scientific techniques and technologies used to manufacture the range of McKees products. An enjoyable morning was had by all - despite having to wear the disposable hair nets and coats!!
