It’s another highlight to what has been a tremendous year for Hannan Meats following on from the company’s success in this year’s Great Taste Awards, which resulted in a record breaking 44 Gold Stars for 25 products.
And of course European Angus played its part in that success being awarded 12 Gold Stars on five Euro Angus beef products.
Commenting on the Farming Life and Danske Bank Small Agri-Food Business of the Year Award for Hannan Meats, European Angus Cattle Society Secretary, Harry McGaffin said: “No-one is more deserving of this award than Peter Hannan and Hannan Meats.
