‘Grace Aloe Refresh’ aloe vera drink - Original Flavour and Elizabeth Shaw ‘Orange Flutes’, both available exclusively from Flanagan’s Foods, have been shortlisted for the finals of the prestigious Irish Quality Food and Drink Awards.
The products were selected from almost a thousand product entries, which underwent three weeks of tough judging at the Dublin Institute of Technology’s School of Culinary Arts and Food Technology.
In addition to the award, Tesco Ireland will provide the winner with a prize of €2,500 and a place on the next Tesco Taste Bud supplier development programme, run in partnership with Bord Bia. The winning small producer will receive mentoring from the Taste Bud team and participate in a seven-month programme of workshops helping the company to secure, grow and maintain a listing with Tesco.
The Irish Quality Food and Drink Awards, now in their third year, set out to recognise excellence in food and drink product development from a wide variety of companies across Ireland.
The ceremony, which will be hosted by Irish celebrity chef and proprietor of restaurant L'Ecrivain Derry Clarke, will take place on 16th September at the Round Room, Mansion House, in Dublin. A selection of shortlisted and winning products will be showcased at the Food & Hospitality Ireland exhibition on September 17th in Dublin.
