Silver Hill Farm in Monaghan has announced premium meat supplier Otto Gourmet will distribute Silver Hill Farm duck products in Germany. Otto Gourmet is known as the leading meat supplier to Michelin starred chefs around Germany.
Silver Hill Farm exports 80% of its produce and until now, this excluded Germany. The company is now planning to grow sales in retail and food service in Germany to in excess of €1 million in the next 3 years.
Bord Bia Marketing Fellow, Eavan Fallon, who is currently working on business development assignments for a number of Irish food and drink companies, secured the agreement.
Commenting on the agreement, Stuart Steele, Managing Director at Silver Hill Farm said, "We identified Germany as a key market for us to break into and so we have been involved with the Bord Bia Marketing Fellowship programme for the last number of years, working with a Fellow placed in the market to identify new sales opportunities for fresh and frozen duck products in Germany. This relationship has recently produced excellent results as is evident with this news from Otto Gourmet."
