The company also received one star awards for seven of its meat products.
ABP’s TDA beef products are produced at its state of the art facility in Cahir, Co. Tipperary, utilising the company’s patented UltraTender™ process, and are dry aged using handcrafted Irish Atlantic Sea Salt.

These prestigious awards are a testament to the dedication of both our employees and our farmer suppliers to upholding an exemplary standard. The Great Taste Awards are an internationally recognised stamp of excellence and our track record of achievement at this event is an incredible endorsement of our quality Irish beef that is enjoyed by consumers around the world.”
