Gold by name, Gold by nature for Broighter Oils

BROIGHTER Gold Oils in Limavady are gold in name and gold in nature as they received a double win during the recent Blas na hEireann awards, earlier this month in Dingle, Co Kerry.

Richard and Leona Kane, who own the multi-award winning Limavady brand, received not one, but two, highly coveted awards from the biggest competition for quality Irish produce on the island of Ireland; one for ‘Best Producer in Derry’ and a second gold award for their Hickory Smoked Oil.

Leona said: “We are absolutely delighted to have received both of these awards from Blas na hEireann; it is a real honour to have our produce recognised and celebrated amongst some of the very best in Irish food & drink across the whole island of Ireland.”

The blind tasting judging system used by Blas na hEireann, now recognised as an international industry standard, saw over 2500 products in over 100 food and drink categories, entering into the 2018 competition with the hope of winning Gold, Silver and Bronze Awards.

Richard adds “We have a small team here at Broglasco Farm and we work hard to ensure that the quality of our product, from tilling to table, reaches the very highest of standards for our customers.

“We are just blown away by our double win this weekend.

“It is moments like this that makes all of our work feel so very worthwhile and rewarding.

“I would like to thank our team here on the farm for all of their hard work, and of course to Blas na h’Eireann for selecting Broighter Gold for these awards.”

The Kane family has been farming in Myroe, Limavady, Northern Ireland for over 100 years.

Richard (a sixth-generation farmer) now works the land at Broglasco Farm, with his wife Leona working by his side to help produce the multi-award winning Broighter Gold Rapeseed Oil range.

The couple have saw their business grow into one of the UK's best known and loved rapeseed oil suppliers and they continue to passionately tend their rape fields and plants as they stride, and are succeeding, in becoming one of Ireland's and the UK's best rapeseed oil suppliers and vegetable oil brands.
