Its official, we have been awarded the coveted award for England’s Best Sirloin Steak! 


From previous news issued on our website, you will be aware that we entered three products into the EBLEX Excellence Awards 2015 which was held on Wednesday 22nd April 2015 at the Shakespeare’s Globe in London. Attending the awards on behalf of the company was Richard Taylor (Owner), Jane Taylor (General Manager), Carl Evans (Operations Manager), John Lupton (Sales and Marketing Manager), Chris Green (Finance Manager) and Lee Gould (Food and Safety Manager). The night proved to be outstanding for the company and reflected the hard work and dedication input by all employees to ensure the quality of our products is always exceeded for our customers. 

Not content with winning one award we were awarded the overall winner for our sirloin steak, category winner for the added value steak and highly commended for our steak pie.
