JBS Group sees stars in UK’s Great Taste Awards
A leading international supplier was celebrating after scooping top recognition for its imported meat in one of the UK’s leading artisan food competitions.
Going up against the best of British, the JBS Group managed to score a two-star gold medal in the Great Taste Awards for its 120-day grain-fed fillet of beef, part of its Australian flagship brand Aberdeen Black.
Marcus O’Sullivan, managing director of JBS Global, the UK arm of JBS Group, said: “This product was awarded a three-star gold medal last year and a two-star gold medal in 2012. To that extent it doesn’t come as a major surprise. This product has earned its stars and will be retired from the Great Taste Awards. For a single product to win seven stars in three years is pretty special. It just shows the quality of the product and the consistency it gives.”
The company also scored a gold medal with its Aberdeen Black flat iron steak, entered into the competition for the first time, and it had further success with its US pork loin and Grassfed Queenslander Sirloin.
O’Sullivan added: “We are particularly pleased with these results; it’s nice that an independent board of over 400 judges adjudge our products, which are commercially produced around the world, alongside some of the finest artisan foods produced here in Great Britain and Europe.”
