Meat Quality

As environmental and sustainability issues come to the fore there has been renewed interest in the Hereford breed with its early maturity and ability to finish more economically at lower weights.  Herefords can provide the consumer with excellent meat produced in a system that benefits the animal and environment.  The Hereford represents quality over quantity and it offers an opportunity for Irish and European farmers to increase margins at the premium end of the market.

The marbling ability of the breed together with the texture and tenderness of Hereford beef have combined with the animals inherent docility to ensure a superior quality eating experience every time.

Certified Hereford Beef is currently available at all LIDL Ireland stores under the Inisvale Selection label. This is an award winning brand succeeding due to the high quality of the meat that the Hereford breed produces.
