It’s A Meaty Partnership For Two Leading Local Companies
HASTINGS Hotels has announced that it is now sourcing all of its beef exclusively from Northern Ireland’s leading meat supplier, Hannan Meats.
The group, which opened the Grand Central Hotel, is a keen supporter of local suppliers and has been working with Hannan Meats for 20 years. The Moira based company will now exclusively supply all the seven Hastings Hotels with its Himalayan salt-aged beef, steaks, Sunday roasts and Glenarm Shorthorn burgers.
Howard Hastings, Managing Director of Hastings Hotels said: “We are delighted to announce that we are now sourcing all of our beef exclusively from Hannan Meats. Food provenance is of major importance to us as a group and it is well-known that we are dedicated to supporting local producers. It is no secret that we only work with the very best local suppliers and have developed a fabulous relationship with Peter Hannan and his award-winning team over the years and have every confidence in the quality of their produce.“Our Chefs take pleasure in creating wonderfully seasonal dishes with the meat of remarkable taste and provenance from Hannan, for example in our Seahorse Restaurant in the Grand Central Hotel the menu boasts a signature Beef Wellington to share and Cooked Blade of Northern Irish Beef or Salt Aged Glenarm Sirloin Steak - so this really is the perfect partnership,” Howard continued.
Peter Hannan from Hannan Meats added: “The beef in Northern Ireland is second to none. We are proud to have developed the Glenarm Shorthorn scheme for our local farmers and we are delighted with the awards we continue to win, because of our Himalayan salt ageing chamber, our skilled butchers, and the quality of the beef we can source. Whilst we have huge demand for our produce from the top London restaurants, we are delighted we can also showcase what we can produce in the restaurants run by Hastings Hotels. We have been working with Howard and his very talented chefs for many years and are delighted to have been awarded exclusivity for all his beef purchasing.”
