Meade Farm scoops three gold Irish Quality Food Awards
7 December 2021 | 0
Meade Farm won big at the recent Irish Quality Food & Drink Awards. The family-run company received three Gold Awards for its Meade Farm Fresh Skinny Chips, Fresh Chunky Chips and Potato Starch, as well as a Silver Award for its White Potatoes. It also received Foodservice Product of the Year for its Potato Starch.
Meade’s Potato Starch offers Irish customers the opportunity to use an Irish-made, gluten-free thickening, binding, and baking agent for the first time. It is more efficient than corn starch when used as a thickener and gives fried foods a light, crispy texture, and baked goods a light, fluffy texture. This product is one of the most versatile gluten free additions to the pantry.
Sustainability is a driving force behind new product development at Meade Farm, and the company utilises its potato crops as fully as possible. Between offering fresh potatoes for the table, chipped ones and starch extracted from them, it has all forms of the humble spud covered.
