Oct 03, 2022

We were delighted to pick up 5 awards at this year's Blas na hEireann Irish Food Awards! 

Now in their fifteenth year, the Blas na hEireann Irish Food Awards is the biggest competition for quality Irish produce in the country. Blas na hEireann celebrate Irish suppliers and reward the best of the best of Irish food and drinks, and we were very proud to be in with such good company in this year's nominations!

We are very pleased to announce that Avoca won Gold for our Superberry Granola and our Greek Style Cheese Dip with Roasted Tomatoes, Silver for our Immunity Chicken & Ginger Broth and Bronze for our Smoked Salmon Pâté, and our Praline Layer Cake with Smarties!

Our famous Superberry granola is the perfect breakfast cereal bursting with goodness. Gently toasted Irish oats, a hint of honey, crunchy nuts and seeds mixed with goji berries and red fruits. The perfect healthy and tasty start to the day, we were so delighted it took home Gold this year!

Our Greek Style Cheese Dip with Roasted Tomatoes consists of slow roast, sweet cherry tomatoes on top of salty Greek cheese, sour cream, and fresh herbs. This dip is so versatile it can be served slathered on our famous brown bread, dolloped into soups or stews, or just eaten with a spoon straight from the tub.

The Immunity Chicken Broth was awarded Silver, and is jam-packed full of goodness. Warming ginger is infused in this slow-cooked chicken broth, it’s finished with chunks of chicken and fresh herbs. When it’s cold outside this broth is guaranteed to keep you warm.

Christmas party entertaining is sorted with our delicious smoked salmon pate, which was awarded Bronze! A mouth-watering blend of Irish smoked salmon, cream cheese, and fresh dill with a spicy horseradish kick. Serve on some classic Avoca brown bread for the perfect combo.

Another Bronze award was given to our famous chocolate and praline cake with an exciting twist. Delicious layers of chocolate fudge cake filled with a decadent praline cream enclose a hidden stash of Smarties that spill out when cut. Guaranteed to bring a smile to everyone’s face.

We're so proud of our passionate team of chefs who prepare all of our meals, cakes and sweet treats with love and care.

We are honored to have taken home these awards, and even more so considering the fantastic competition from so many other incredible Irish producers!
