Over 20 ‘Great Taste’ stars for Dawn Meats in London – Agriland
Dawn Meats has been awarded over 20 stars at the annual Great Taste 2018 Awards in London, which is run by the Guild of Fine Food.
A spokesperson for the meat processor added that it achieved three prestigious three-star awards also across its beef and lamb products.
Dawn Meats has operations in 10 locations around Ireland and many more across the UK and Europe.
It is a premium beef and lamb supplier to a wide range of blue-chip food businesses in over 40 countries, according to the company.
Dawn was awarded three of the top-ranked three-star awards for its:
West of Ireland 50-Day Dry-aged French-trimmed bone in Rib, apparently described by the judging panel as “the Sunday joint of our dreams”;
Borders Lamb Shoulder Joint – of which the judging panel purportedly remarked “the depth of flavour is truly remarkable”; and
Caledonia Crown Aberdeen Angus Matured Marbled Standing Rib – described by the judging panel as “simply beef at its best”.
In 2018 over 500 judges assessed entries from March through to early July. A total of 12,634 products were entered in 2018’s competition.
Commenting on the awards, CEO of Dawn Meats Niall Browne said: “Well done to our teams across Ireland and the UK who have outdone themselves this year in their dedication to quality, taste and presentation.
“This recognition is a great result for the team and their collaboration with our farmer suppliers.”
