Leading German chefs Otto Gourmet have signed a deal to distribute fresh duck products from Silver Hill Farm in Co Monaghan. The agreement with the Michelin-star chefs was secured by Bord Bia marketing fellow Eavan Fallon, who is working on business development assignments on behalf of a number of Irish food and drink companies in the country.
Silver Hill Farm exports 80% of produce and until now this excluded Germany. The company plans to develop sales in retail and food service in Germany to over €1m in the next three years.
Managing director Stuart Steele said: “We identified Germany as a key market for us to break into and so we have been involved with the Bord Bia Marketing Fellowship programme for the last number of years, working with a fellow in the market to identify sales opportunities for fresh and frozen duck products. This has produced excellent results as is evident with this news from Otto Gourmet.”
