Winning an Irish Quality Food Award doesn't end on the night. Publicising your win and shouting about it means your consumers know how amazing your products are too! here's what some previous winners have to say about winning a Q.
“Winning IQFA small producer 2017 means so much to us as a small family run business. Not only has all our hard work been rewarded but the opportunity to grow our business with Dunnes Stores Simply Better range is so exciting. When we attend a tasting or a market, telling people of our awards, changes the way they taste our products. Having these awards has become a tool that we can use, it gives us a different edge. WE know our products are fabulous. To be told they are fabulous with recognition from judges at the highest level is just wonderful”
Orlaigh Meere, Meere's Pork Products
"The Pip and Pear range is proudly made in Ireland and so winning such a prestigious award for our high quality dishes is something we are incredibly proud of. The Irish Quality Food Awards are widely known and incredibly respected within the food industry, this award has been a great benefit for our brand and business".
Clodagh Phelan, Pip and Pear
"I am absolutely shocked and over the moon to have been awarded Irish Food Hero of the Year. It is a great privilege and honour to have received such recognition from such prestigious awards. Many chefs do not get the chance to shine in the Foodservice Industry so again this makes the award even more special for people like me in this business. Thank you".
