Celebrations once again as Hannan Meats is Best Speciality from Northern Ireland

Cheers could be heard throughout London as Hannan Meats once again received Great Taste Golden Fork for Best Speciality from Northern Ireland for Moyallan Three Sweet Bacon Ribs. “For the third consecutive year, Hannan Meats has been in the top award winners” commented John Farrand, MD of the Guild of Fine Food, organisers of Great Taste. “After winning the Supreme Champion title in 2012, Hannan Meats then went on to win Best Speciality in Northern Ireland 2013, and this year the same regional Golden Fork title goes back with Hannan Meats to Moira in Craigavon, Armagh which is a magnificent result for Northern Ireland food as a whole. The quality of Hannan Meats’ products is outstanding and our judges were impressed, not only with the winning Sweet Bacon Ribs but also with the Himalayan Salt Aged Rib of Beef which was also nominated for the award”.

Hannan Meats uses fully traceable, local meat and traditional butchery skills combined with a unique Himalayan Salt Chamber for dry aging. Its Moyallon Sweet Bacon Ribs were described by one judge as “delicious sweetness with perfect fat and meat layers, well balanced and really very good”.

Out of 10,000 products entered into Great Taste 2014, Hannan Meats’ Moyallon Sweet Bacon Ribs were awarded the honour at the Great Taste Golden Forks Dinner on September 8th, where over 300 guests from the world of fine food gathered to hear the results of many months of judging.
