Burgers Awarded EBLEX Accolade

Makers of the country's finest beef burgers have been handed an accolade by the English Beef and Lamb Executive (EBLEX).

The top burgers in three categories - manufacturers, caterers and schools - were awarded trophies, certificates and the chance to take part in a sporting experience of their choice valued at £500.

All entrants used Quality Standard English beef mince to make their patties.

Winners were: manufacturer - Frank Parker Butchers of Nuneaton for his Low Fat burgers; caterer - Tony Robson-Burrell of The Wheatsheaf in Oaksey, Wiltshire for his Rump Steak burger; school meals - Brian Fawcett of Gilmour Foods, suppliers to North Yorkshire County Council, with his Yorkshire Dales beefburger.

Hugh Judd, EBLEX foodservice manager, said: "We were impressed by the quality of the winning burgers and with the fact that all three winners were passionate about sourcing their meat from trusted suppliers."
