These are an annual event and do not always get a lot of coverage. However their selection of artisan producers in each category of awards cannot be argued. This years branded product winners were:
Janet’s County Fayre – Beetroot Blush
I have seen these a couple of times in various deli’s and specialist retailers so must purchase some next time – chutneys and associated foods not my thing but I know someone who will appreciate this! Their website is here.
This is a Marmalade from them which I saw in the Shortis Wong Deli in Kilkenny
This long running business won this awards for their dedication to sourcing their oats from farmers in the local towns and villages around their mills. Their website is here.
I covered them on Biabeag previously when they were part of Waterfords Harvest festival last Autumn.
You can see full details of the awards on the Irish Food Writers site.
