Musgrave Marketplace, in partnership with Certified Irish Angus and Kepak, announced as a premium supplier at this year’s prestigious event
Certified Irish Angus beef will be served for the first time at this year’s Galway Races Summer Festival. The Butchers Prime Certified Irish Angus Beef cut is processed by Kepak on behalf of Musgrave Marketplace, Ireland’s leading food service, retail, and SME wholesaler. The strong alliance between the producer, processor, and food service provider is key to delivering the tastiest, naturally marbled, and succulent Certified Irish Angus beef at the prestigious event this summer.
The catering for this year’s summer festival races will be provided by Lydon House, which prides itself in supplying high-end catering for the popular summer festival. Situated in the heart of Galway City, the company is committed to supporting local Irish suppliers. With Musgrave Marketplace situated on the Tuam Road mere minutes from the Ballybrit racecourse and Certified Irish Angus sourced from small family farms, the partnership showcases the best of local sourcing.
Speaking about the partnership Michael Flynn, director of Lydon House said, “It is our pleasure to serve Certified Irish Angus Beef from Musgrave Marketplace at this year’s races. The farm-to-fork level of traceability that comes with Certified Irish Angus Beef means that I can guarantee that consistently excellent beef is served to all our customers.”
Mel Bohan, Kepak Group said, “The care and attention that Certified Irish Angus Beef receives at every stage in the food chain is evident in the superior quality of the product, and we are delighted as processing partners to ensure high standards are maintained at this year’s Galway Races. We are delighted that our well-established business partnership with Musgrave Marketplace has another opportunity to develop further and grow as this event.”
Charles Smith, General Manager, of Certified Irish Angus said, “This partnership provides recognition to Certified Irish Angus farmers whose continued dedication to producing superior Irish Angus beef has resulted in merited menu listings at major events and in top restaurants around the country. As a producer group, our strength will always be the small family farms that are part of our community and who can feel proud to provide top quality at Ballybrit racecourse.”
The unmissable Galway Races Summer Festival will run from the 31st of July until the 6th of August at the Ballybrit racecourse where there is promised music, fashion, and quality food.
