Cooked meats are playing a key role in the packed lunch trend whereby more and more adult consumers are opting to bring a lunch to work to save money.
Using cooked meats, consumers can quickly rustle up a tasty, nutritious sandwich, or add flavour to a saintly salad, while ‘peel and seal’ packaging innovations allow them to easily save the remainder for longer. Pre-packed brands are also emphasising their Irishness, ‘farm to fork’ traceability, and the traditional butchery methods and craft they use – even naming the farms and farmers with whom they work in order to create a quality product.
Pre-packed meats are also benefiting from a ‘retro-isation’ trend, whereby consumers are looking back to simpler, pre-Celtic Tiger times and engaging in activities that are fun for the whole family, such as enjoying picnics with homemade sandwiches.
The Brady Bunch
The name Brady Family has long been synonymous with great tasting, quality, traditional, hand-crafted Irish ham, which is available from the deli counter and more recently, pre-packed from the chill cabinet also. Brady Family has used its expertise gained over the last 30 years through this craftsmanship, to perfect its pre-packed range of ham including Hand-Carved, Thicker-Cut and Deli Style ham; an extensive range to satisfy all consumer needs.
Brady Family is passionate about natural, wholesome food and believes that the simple things in life are often the best. Therefore, there’s no better sandwich filling than a slice of Brady Family Thicker-Cut Ham or for the perfect ham salad, add a slice or two of Brady Family Hand-Carved Ham to fresh salad ingredients. The range has farm to fork traceability, so Brady Family can guarantee customers that care and attention has been taken at every step of the way, ensuring that quality is never compromised, resulting in the taste of real Irish ham, that’s unique to the Brady Family brand.
All the range is of premium quality endorsed by the Bord Bia Quality Mark and is made using 100% Irish ham. Brady Family is proud to be part of the Love Irish Food campaign, supporting Irish jobs. Brady Family ham is renowned for its unique and superior flavour, making it a real hit with consumers, so it advises retailers to ensure they stock up to keep customers happy.
