Meanwhile, one of this year’s Food & Hospitality Ireland exhibitors - James Whelan Butchers - has won a supreme award for the best food product in the UK and Ireland at this week’s Guild of Fine Food Awards in London for its Beef Dripping.
Supreme champion, Pat Whelan of James Whelan Butchers, a fifth generation butcher, produces the award-winning beef dripping, which also received a 3 Star Great Taste Award and is included in 2015 Top 50 foods in the UK and Ireland. There are over 10,000 entries into the Great Taste Awards with only 130 receiving the highest and most coveted rating of 3 stars, making this a great achievement for James Whelan Butchers.
James Whelan Butchers will be exhibiting at stand D10 in the Great Taste Market at Food & Hospitality Ireland on the 16-17 September at the Citywest Events Centre, where the supreme award-winning beef dripping can be sampled, along with other products from Whelan’s.
