Hannan Meats Congratulated on Supreme Great Taste Success

Sep 06, 2016

Economy Minister Simon Hamilton has congratulated The Meat Merchant, owned by Peter Hannan, on being named as the Supreme Champion in the final of the United Kingdom Great Taste Awards last night.

The specialist meat business in Moira achieved 36 product awards in the 2016 Great Taste Awards, a record number of awards for a single food manufacturer in the United Kingdom or the Republic of Ireland.

Simon Hamilton said: “Hannan Meats is our most successful company in the history of the Great Taste Awards and typifies the world-class food and drink produced in Northern Ireland.

“This accolade tops a remarkable year for Managing Director Peter Hannan and is recognition of the company’s outstanding commitment to innovation.

“It’s a unique year for Northern Ireland food and drink. The 212 local products rewarded with the UK Guild of Fine Food’s valuable independent validation of taste and quality present an important and fitting showcase of the pure, natural quality of our produce.”

In July, 13 local products from eight companies were awarded the highest accolade of three gold stars in the prestigious annual event organised by the influential UK Guild of Fine Food. Eighty four local companies also secured almost 303 gold stars.
