Overall Product of the Show award presented to Broighter Gold Limavady-based Broighter Gold has been awarded the top accolade at IFEX 2012 – Northern Ireland’s premier food, drink, retail and hospitality event – for its Broighter Gold Rapeseed Oil.
Competing against almost 100 products and services from the food and hospitality sectors, Broighter Gold’s Rapeseed Oil was named as the Overall Product of the Show by an independent panel of judges, chaired by the award-winning restaurateur and proprietor of Deanes Restaurants, Michael Deane.
IFEX was officially opened today by Minister for the Department of Enterprise, Trade and Investment, Arlene Foster, who joined Michael Deane in presenting the Product of the Show awards, which recognised gold and silver winning products in ten categories.
Broighter Gold also picked up the gold award in the Best Product Packaging category.
Grown and cold-pressed on an arable family farm in Limavady, Broighter Gold Rapeseed Oil is one of the healthiest and most versatile cooking oils available. With a subtle, velvety and nutty flavour, Broighter Gold Rapeseed Oil is ideal for all kinds of cooking, baking, stir frying and drizzling leaving food crispy as opposed to oily.
Chairman of the judging panel, Michael Deane, adds: “Broighter Gold was a very worthy winner. The Broighter Gold Rapeseed Oil stood out for its taste, quality, versatility and packaging. At IFEX, where there’s thousands of new products and business solutions all under one roof, the Product of the Show awards are extremely valuable as it showcases industry-leading products to the over 4,500 visitors; additionally, winning companies will have their products showcased on a national stage.
For the Overall Product of the Show winner – Broighter Gold – we sincerely hope that this industry endorsement and recognition will help further their business and promote Broighter Gold Rapeseed Oil far and wide.”
