Rosscarbery Recipes are well known for their amazing and delicious pork products – black and white puddings, traditional and gluten-free sausages, dry cure, bacon and rashers. These award-winning products were even the first Irish winner of the European Black Pudding competition back in 2007! And now, the family business is expanding the range and we’d imagine they’re preparing to expand their trophy case too!
The company is owned by Willie and Avril Allshire; their son Maurice followed his older brother, William, and joined the family business having completed his Leaving Certificate.
“It all started for me when I became more interested in fitness. Along with a healthy lifestyle comes a healthy diet. I became more aware and more conscious what I was eating. When I was still in school I came across biltong as a healthy snack. I completed my Leaving Cert, got my points and the course I wanted and then cancelled the course. I was doing what I wanted!
“I had already begun developing Rosscarbery Biltong. After over a year of product development, infrastructural changes, packaging and design, I launched in October, 2017. Two weeks previously I won Silver in Blás na hÉireann. I was the youngest ever award winner at 19 years old!”
Maurice wanted something tasty, that he could eat on the go and with “an ingredient list that a toddler could read”.
“I started with the best possible beef – we’ve always been Angus beef people! From there, I began developing the best possible snack I could, using the best ingredients I could source.
“I developed Rosscarbery Biltong around my own lifestyle, so, naturally, using the best ingredients, I wasn’t going to cut corners in production. It all took time.”
These divine, savoury snacks contain over 50 percent natural protein and are just 57 calories per pack. Each piece is also low in fat and made from lean, certified Angus beef. “This isn’t just beef. This is the world’s best grass-fed beef!”
This snack is a natural source of calcium, iron, selenium, zinc, magnesium, Vitamin B3, Vitamin B6 and Vitamin B12. It’s also free from gluten, MSG, dairy, nitrates, allergens, e-numbers and artificial colours, flavours and preservatives.
“It’s simple, good food on the go.”
