Northern Ireland-based meat processor Linden Foods has been named UK Manufacturer of the Year in the 2012 Meat Management Awards. Linden Foods beat off stiff competition from other manufacturing companies across the UK to win this prestigious national award. The win comes after the opening of Linden Food’s £10 million state-of-the art retail packing and product development facility in Dungannon in 2011.

The Meat Management Awards, which are held annually, acknowledge the achievements and set the benchmark for excellence in the UK meat industry. Hundreds of industry leaders and aficionados of the food and drink world attend each year.

This is the latest accolade awarded to Linden Foods, which over the past five years has been recognised for its innovation and quality across its range of beef, lamb and rose veal products. The award also coincides with the launch of a number of new products this year including a mini burger and kebab range in the run up to the lucrative barbecue season.

Gerry Maguire, managing director of Linden Foods, comments: “We are committed to providing our customers with a range of exciting new products that are well ahead of current trends within the food retailing sector. The phenomenal growth we have experienced as a business in recent years is testament to this philosophy and gives as a platform for further growth.”
