Irish flair for Fortnum & Mason
Prestigious retailer Fortnum & Mason has introduced a Glenarm Shorthorn branded premium burger from Northern Irish producer Hannan Meats.
The burger has been created by the Moira, Co Down-based producer, using quality beef aged in a unique complex of Himalayan salt chambers. It is the latest product from Hannan Meats, sourced from the Glenarm Estate in Co Antrim, to be stocked at Fortnum & Mason.
“The Glenarm branded burger is the outcome of our collaboration with Fortnum & Mason on a range of premium added-value beef products from the Glenarm Estate, which now has a growing following among customers from our immensely important contract for beef aged in salt chambers,” said Peter Hannan, founder and managing director of Hannan Meats.
“We’ve been focusing resources for some time on developing exceptional burgers from quality meat that offer an excellent taste experience. I believe we’ve created an outstandingly tasty burger from the very best beef. The burger has become such an important element in home cooking and especially in restaurants. I’ve long believed there were opportunities to create a truly exceptional burger for both quality restaurants and retailing,” he added.
“Fortnum & Mason sampled the new product and placed a contract for the burgers, which we are launching under the Glenarm Shorthorn brand.” The premium retailer has exclusive rights to the new product.
Hannan Meats boasts the accolade of being the only food producer in Britain and Ireland to win the Supreme Champion title twice at the UK Great Taste Awards. It has also won more Gold awards in the competition than any other business in the UK and Ireland.
Having established itself as a renowned processor, Hannan Meats developed an award-winning burger for the Stock Burger restaurant chain by Intercontinental Hotels, one of the world’s leading foodservice and hospitality organisations.
