Irish Hereford Prime
This is wonderful brand, made up of over 6,000 Irish Hereford Beef farmers all over Ireland who came together in 1997 to create a market and sell their beef. They are committed to producing premium quality Irish beef with sustainable methods based on strict criteria including age and weight.
Fed on lush Irish grass pastures Irish Hereford Prime has a unique taste, flavour and texture. Traditionally the Irish Hereford was one of the foremost beef breeds in Ireland but over the years it was challenged by continental breeds and crosses.
However, Irish Hereford Prime has given farmers the opportunity to sustainably produce premium quality beef. This together with its reputation of excellence, not just here at home but internationally, has once again led to the soaring popularity of Irish Hereford beef production in Ireland.
Chefs have made Irish Hereford Prime a centre point of their menus. The marbling ability of the breed together with the tenderness and texture of the beef ensure a superior quality eating experience every time.
