European Angus supply chain partner Hannan Meats is named Small Agri-Food Business of the Year!

28th October, 2013

European Angus supply chain partner Hannan Meats has been named Small Agri-Food Business of the Year in the 2013 Farming Life and Danske Bank Awards.

Peter Hannan, Managing Director of Moira-based Hannan Meats was presented with the prestigious award at the black tie gala event staged at the Ramada Hotel in Belfast on October 24 by Ian Clarke, Advertising Director of Johnston Press and Robert McCullough, Head of Agriculture at Danske Bank.

More than 270 people attended the agricultural industry showcase event including Agricultural Minister, Michelle O’Neill and Finance Minister, Simon Hamilton.

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.
“Working in partnership with Hannan Meats we launched our beef scheme back in July of 2012 and within a period of 12 months our beef was being sold in a number of very prestigious outlets including Fortnum & Mason and all of Mark Hix’s restaurants in London.
“His foresight and vision along with marketing know-how is second-to-none and Peter and his team work tirelessly representing not only the interests of European Angus but all of the suppliers that the company represents in the marketplace.”

Now into its third year the Farming Life and Danske Bank Awards are very much recognised as a celebration and recognition of the people who play a major part in the success of the local agricultural industry.
