Kilkenny companies up for national organic food awards

Highbank Orchard

Two County Kilkenny organic food producers have been shortlisted for the upcoming National Organic Awards, organised by Bord Bia and the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine. 

Second Nature Oils’ Bee Friendly Cold Pressed Organic Rapeseed Oil is shortlisted in the Export Award category, and Orchard Syrup from Highbank Orchards is a shortlisted finalist in the Chef’s Choice category.

The National Organic Awards, which mark the achievements of Irish organic food and drink growers and manufacturers who create excellent quality organic products in Ireland, will take place at Bord Bia’s Dublin headquarters on Thursday, October 13. Following judging by a team of industry experts, just 20 companies were shortlisted across seven categories.
