Local food producers make it to Blas na hÉireann finals

Front Page

Eleven food producers from County Louth have made it through to the finals of the Blas na hÉireann 2021 and the countdown is on for the awards weekend which will take place virtually again this year on October 2nd

The awards, which this year attracted a record number of entries from producers right across the island, seek to reward the very best, not just in their category but to highlight the best of local as well, including an award for Best in Louth which is supported by LEO Louth. 

Now in their 14th year, the team at Blas na hÉireann have had to work harder than ever this year to make sure the awards went ahead, moving the blind-tasting judging system from the campus in UCC to Dingle to work within Government guidelines and the constraints of social distancing.  

The finalists shortlisted from Louth across a range of different categories are:

  • McEntee's Tea,

Congratulating the eleven finalists from Louth, the Head of Enterprise at Louth Local Enterprise Office, Thomas McEvoy, said:

“Over the years, Louth food businesses have enjoyed great success at these prestigious Irish food awards along with the benefits of having their products associated with the Blas accreditation.” 

Blas na hÉireann Chairperson, Artie Clifford said : “We saw a large increase in entries this year and these new producers have really raised the bar across all categories and will allow us to introduce new producers to the buyers and press whom we work with which is really exciting.” 

The awards will be announced over the course of the day on October 2nd on the Blas website www.irishfooodawards.com and across social media channels to make sure #Blas2021 trends all day!
