Attyflin Estate is celebrating its success at this year’s Blas na hEireann awards, where the Limerick company picked up four awards including a gold for its blackcurrant preserve.
This is the 11th year of the Blas na hÉireann awards, which reward the best tasting Irish food and drink products, and the producers who make them.
Paul Mordaunt, General Manager, Attyflin Estate, said: “Over 2,500 products from all 32 counties in Ireland were entered this year. We were therefore delighted that, on our first time entering the competition, three of our products made it through to the finals which took place in Dingle last month. We are proud to have picked up four awards, including a gold award, two silver awards, and a special award for the Best New Start-Up. The success will serve to spur us on to create an even wider range of high quality products for our customers to enjoy.”
October proved to be a busy month for Attyflin Estate which welcomed a delegation of international visitors who were in Ireland as part of the Food on the Edge symposium. The group, which included Michelin star chefs and food journalists, enjoyed a tour of the production facility and walled garden before tasting a range of Attyflin Estate’s apples, juices and preserves.
The Attyflin Estate product range is available throughout Ireland in independent health food stores and is part of the SuperValu Food Academy.
