William Grant and Company

Founded in Bishop Street in the Maiden City in 1911, this family-run business has serious pedigree. The late William Grant won his first awards back in 1928 when some of his produce achieved the highest accolades at the famous Waverley Market International Food Exhibition in Edinburgh.

Today the company now in its third generation is still being recognised for the quality of its produce. In 2023 their Dry Cured Bacon scooped the Gold in the Bacon category at the Blas na hÉireann Irish Food Awards and it features on the breakfast menus of  the Hastings Hotels across Northern Ireland. 

Also in 2023 their Guanciale achieved double success when it won both a Chef’s Larder Award at Blas nah Eireann Awards and a 3 Star Great Taste Award from the Guild of Fine Foods. Their famous Sugar Pit Bacon Rack also won a 3 Star Great Taste Award in 2018.

Today, all of their pork and bacon comes from locally sourced pigs that have been slaughtered in their own abattoir and cured using traditional methods handed down over the years. They sell to various butchers’ shops, independent retailers, hotels and restaurants and supply a number of wholesalers throughout Ireland and the UK.

BRC accredited.
