2021 ended on a high for Irish grower, packer and distributor Meade Farm Group. As
Caroline Allen reports for Agriland, the Meade family’s passion for potatoes in all shapes and forms was evident at the recent Irish Quality Food and Drink Awards.
They scooped three gold awards for their fresh skinny chips, fresh chunky chips and potato starch in the foodservice category, as well as a silver gong for their white potatoes.
In addition, their potato starch won foodservice product of the year. This new product offers Irish customers the opportunity to use an Irish-made, gluten-free thickening, binding and baking agent for the first time, according to Meade’s communications manager, Jeni Meade.
