Denhay bacon gets royal approval
Denhay Farms, the award-winning bacon producer from Dorset, has been awarded a Royal Warrant.
The company, which has been curing bacon since 1994, can now carry a Royal Warrant to The Prince of Wales – the first time His Royal Highness has granted such an accolade to a bacon curer.
George Streatfeild, director of Denhay Farms, said: “The whole team at Denhay is thrilled with the news – everyone works so hard to keep the standard of our bacon as high as when we first started making it.
“To be granted the Royal Warrant from HRH The Prince of Wales is a brilliant accolade for us and we hope that this added recognition speaks volumes for the quality and taste of our bacon.”
Denhay has won a record number of awards for its bacon, which is made from British high-welfare pork and is hand-rubbed in sea salt. Its bacon is available in major food halls, high quality delicatessens and leading supermarkets, notably Waitrose. It first started out as a cheese producer in 1952.
The Royal Warrant was granted for five years starting on 1 January 2011.
