Silver Hill Award HERE The Duck Truck HERE
Silver Hill Duck the star of the show at the Great Taste Awards 2020 Great Taste, the world’s most trusted food and drink awards and known as the Oscars of the food industry, has announced its stars of 2020. Out of 12,777 products sent in from 106 different countries, Silver Hill Duck in Emyvale, Co. Monaghan has been awarded an outstanding total of 11 Gold Stars across 7 different products including their Whole Duck, Duck Fillets & Confit Duck Legs. Judged by 144 of the most discerning palates, belonging to food critics, chefs, cooks, restaurateurs, buyers, retailers and producers, as well as food writers and journalists, Great Taste is the most coveted of all food and drink awards. As well as a badge of honour, the unmistakeable black and gold Great Taste label is a signpost to an outstanding product, which has been discovered through hours and hours of blind tasting. Greg Devlin, Marketing Manager for Silver Hill Duck, explains: “2020 has been an extremely challenging year for all food suppliers but it was certainly a high point to have our most successful year ever at the Great Taste Awards. The achievement of 11 Gold Stars is great recognition and a further testament to our unwavering commitment to quality. Collectively all of our team are proud, honoured and motivated to continue bringing the famous Silver Hill Duck to markets near & far from our home in Emyvale, Co. Monaghan. Great Taste 2020 will reach its exciting finale in late October, when the Golden Fork trophy winners and the Great Taste Supreme Champion 2020 are announced at the virtual Great Taste Golden Fork awards event.
Silver Hill Duck leads the way sustainably as they receive inaugural Origin Green Gold Membership. Last Thursday November 19th, Silver Hill Duck in Emyvale, Co. Monaghan joined 25 other leading food and drink business from around Ireland who were awarded the prestigious title of being an Origin Green Gold Member. The title was awarded to the premium duck producer in recognition of their efforts to excel in sustainable food production. Companies eligible for Gold Membership have demonstrated an overall exceptional performance within a given year. In the past, all Origin Green member companies were given the designation of being a ‘verified member’; but this is a broad categorization in a large cohort and does not reflect the ambition of the selected companies who are making significant strides in their sustainability efforts. Denise Jordon, Environmental Manager for Silver Hill Duck stated “We are very proud of our history of sustainability and we recognise the importance sustainability plays in our business today and for the next generation. We take pride in the fact that we utilise every part of the duck through our various sales channels, including Offal, Fat, and Feathers to make Duvets and Pillows”. Origin Green is a badge we proudly showcase internationally. Our customers want Peking Duck that is produced sustainably and the Origin Green Gold stamp authenticates the great efforts at Silver Hill to consistently do just that. Speaking at the event itself, Tara McCarthy, Bord Bia CEO said “Origin Green Gold Membership is about recognising those companies who, each year, make a significant individual stride in sustainability – who provide a best-in- class environmental performance that deserves to be highlighted and celebrated – and who have a story to tell that excites consumers and can be an inspiration and role model for their peers. Silver Hill Duck is one of these companies.” Silver Hill currently employ 240 staff across all of their sites and export premium duck and duck products to 24 countries in Europe, South East Asia and the Middle East. Their exclusive Silver Hill Duck breed is an annual award winner for its taste and quality and last year the company also won the highly acclaimed ‘Bord Bia Exporter Of The Year”.
