The Burren Smokehouse has netted yet another award for their Irish smoked salmon, picking up one of the top prizes at the 2014 Irish Quality Food and Drinks Awards.
The Clare-based family business won the category of “Best Fresh Fish Award” with their Burren Smoked Irish Organic Salmon with Seaweed product.
The Irish Quality Food Awards are open to all Irish retailers, food producers, wholesalers, and food service operators in both the North and South of the island of Ireland.
The judging took place over two weeks in July at The Dublin Institute of Technology’s School of Culinary Arts and Food Technology. Every product was evaluated by at least 10 judges.
Bruce Langlands, Director of Foods at Harrods department store in London, congratulated Burren Smokehouse owner-manager Birgitta Hedin Curtin on her continued success when they met at the Awards Dinner at the Mansion House in Dublin.
He said he was “not surprised” at the success of the product, having been a judge at the Great Taste Awards 2013 where the marinade won a 3-star Gold Medal and was named in the TOP 50 Foods out of 10,000 entries.
