There are a number of branded beef schemes paying substantial premiums for certified Hereford Beef. Major retailers including The Co-operative, top ranking restaurateurs and quality conscious butchers are all selecting Hereford as their premium offering.
The Northern Ireland Certified Hereford Beef Scheme is a partnership between local Hereford breeders and Dunbia with product distributed through some of the UK's most prestigious meat outlets.
Eligibility is subject to traceability to a registered Hereford sire and compliance with the Northern Ireland Farm Quality Assurance Scheme. Further information on the scheme specification and bookings can be made to the Dunbia procurement team on 028 87723350.
Registered Hereford beef schemes are also run by WD Meats from Coleraine, Linden Foods at Dungannon and Foyle meats at Omagh.
