Meaty match as Falcons and Toro join forces

Wednesday 02 November 2016 Written by: Adam

Based just a mile and a half away from Kingston Park, Toro boast restaurant quality meat at less than supermarket prices, and Falcons players will be the beneficiaries of a deal which sees academy squad members receiving a regular food pack from the Westerhope company. The man of the match at all Newcastle Falcons home games will also benefit with a delivery of Toro products – the wholesaler open to trade and public alike from Monday to Saturday.

In recognition of the new deal Toro will start selling special ‘Falcons bundles’ to members of the public, with all packs approved by Newcastle’s head of athletic performance, Kevin McShane.

McShane said: “It is crucial for our players to be taking in the right kinds of fuel to maximise performance, and protein is a big part of that. Our partnership with Toro enables us get top-quality meat and fish on a regular basis to our academy players, many of whom will be living away from home for the first time.

“Toro are fantastic partners in that they know exactly what we want, and they are able to tailor their packages to our very specific needs. They are right on the doorstep, the standard of their meat and fish is outstanding and they offer great value for money.”

Mark Greenwell of Toro Foodworks Wholesale, said: “We are delighted to be able to assist our local rugby team by catering for their protein needs, and look forward to seeing them at our factory shop in Westerhope.”
