Hip Hip Hooray!! We are finally in local Tesco stores…
After initially being part of the Food hall online shop, we have now also been added to stores in local areas (Northants, Beds, Bucks, and Cambs) This is a very exciting step for us, and this gives us another chance to meet our local customers through Demos, and sampling days.
The Meat and Poultry Processing Awards took place at the Radisson Blu Edwardian Hotel in Manchester, on Thursday 21 March 2013
We won our Category for The Small Processing Business of The Year
Nigel said: “It was a real honour to be up on stage but it is the Houghton Hams team that is behind this success, not just me. This is for everyone and I am delighted to be able to take this back to Northampton.
“I don’t think money could buy the award. Companies can now look at us with a different perception of what we can achieve for them as a supplier. Within the industry, it’s a great award for us to win. We’ll savour it and enjoy the year”.
All the team were really pleased with the result and enjoyed the night! Here are a few of our photos from the evening….
Michelin starred chef Tom Kerridge, loves his ham. For centuries, every village would have its own ham curer, and he was desperate to meet up with Houghton Hams to find out how their traditional Wagstaff cure receipe has produced some of the finest british ham purchased on the high street today.
Tom was also keen to include his visit to Houghton Hams in BBC 2 Great British Food Revival. The series, which really touched a nerve with the British public, aims to highlight the plight of British produce that is in danger of disappearing from our dinner tables forever. Some of BBC’s best loved chefs, including Tom Kerridge, champion the qualities of our traditional produce and encourage us to re-think our cooking and shopping habits.
Our Ham’s are already proving to be a huge success in local Waitrose, Co-operative Group Stores, plus Ocado Nationally. It was a real pleasure to put a huge smile on the face of Tom Kerridge when he sampled our latest range.
