The Blas na hÉireann awards is one of the biggest events in the Irish foodie calendar. The event draws products from all over the island in the hope of winning one of their prestigious accolades.
The awards were developed by the team at Blas na hÉireann in conjunction with the Food Science Department at UCC. The process involves the products going through a rigorous testing process where the products are blind taste tested and judged by some of the top industry experts.
With over 2,700 products having been entered into this years awards, and only five products making it to the finalist stage, we were delighted to have been shortlisted with our Wheaten Bread Mix product and invited to the finals in Dingle where we had an incredible weekend meeting some of the best food producers in the world. Unfortunately, our Wheaten Bread Mix didn’t make the final cut, but we were delighted to have been shortlisted and placed amongst Ireland’s finest.
The weekend in Dingle was a fantastic experience and we were overwhelmed by the high standard of products across the board. The island of Ireland really is at the top of the food game and we can’t wait to go back next year – fingers crossed!
