This week (4th Oct 2021), we received the fantastic news that we had received not one, but two awards from the Blas na hÉireann Irish Food Awards! We were awarded a Gold for our Dunnes Stores Simply Better Irish Free Range Corn Fed Eggs Large Pack 6 and a bronze for our Ballyfree Free Range Medium 10 eggs.
Now in its 14th year, Blas na hÉireann, The Irish Food Awards is the biggest competition for quality Irish produce on the island of Ireland. The awards are the biggest blind tasting of food products in the country. The criteria on which products are judged, as well as the judging system itself, (which was developed by Blas na hÉireann with the Food Science Dept of UCC), is now recognised as an international industry standard. Research has shown that the Blas accreditation has the highest recognition amongst Irish consumers. Here at Greenfield Foods we are delighted with the news, because we feel the awards recognise the great taste of our eggs, produced by our amazing farm families, from very happy hens.
