To be counted among the very best that the Irish food landscape has to offer is a true stamp of excellence for our products and a testament to the dedication and hard work of our team and our famer suppliers. I believe this success also marks a further endorsement of our Ultra Tender process, which has resulted in ABP beef being served in Michelin starred restaurants across the world.”
