Gold & Silver for Waldron Meats at Blas 2017
Waldrons, a family-owned business in Brideswell, Athlone, has received a Gold Award for their Maple & Mustard Baked ham and a silver for their new Panda Pudding Roulade at the Blas na hEireann Irish Food Awards.
This is the 10th year of the Blas na hEireann Irish Food Awards, the largest blind-tasted food awards in Ireland. They recognise and celebrate the very best Irish food and drink, with over 400 finalist producers from 2500 entries competing in 130 categories in Dingle.
A Blas na hEireann accreditation has been researched to show the highest recognition amongst Irish consumers and using the award logo on product packs really does encourage shoppers to buy these great products. It is a guarantee of a top quality Irish product.
No strangers to winning awards, the Bord Bia approved Waldrons is a family-owned business providing 18 jobs in its production facility in Brideswell, Athlone.
Receiving a Gold for their Maple & Mustard Baked ham and a silver for their new Panda Pudding Roulade at this year’s awards extends their accolades to cover products right across their range.
Available across the country, the Waldron Family range is made from 100% Irish pork and includes premium food products for the retail and catering markets – bacon joints, pork joints, rashers, sausages, black and white pudding and cooked meats.
“It’s great testament to all the hard work put in by all the staff in achieving this award. We are striving all the time to improve the quality and taste of our products and getting this recognition will spur us on further, we are always working on new recipes,” said a delighted Michael about their victory.
The judges look for extra-special products that are made using top quality Irish ingredients, by passionate and talented producers.
“We’re definitely passionate about what we do and it’s great to get that recognition from such a prestigious judging panel,” said Yvonne.
