Speaking about the recent awards, James Cunningham Jnr, the fourth generation of
his family to run the business said:
“We are truly overwhelmed to receive these prestigious awards. I can’t thank our
wonderful customers enough for their support. It’s a particularly special occasion as
we now hold both a UK and Ireland ‘best butcher’ title and we are so proud to bring
these accolades to our home town of Kilkeel.
Being named the UK’s ‘Butcher Shop of the Year’ is testament to the passion, skill
and dedication of our brilliant staff without whom our business would not be where
it is today.”
He added; “Our fantastic workforce coupled with our ability to blend tradition with
unique innovation has resulted in a great couple of years for our business. Since
2010, we have grown our workforce from three members of staff to over 50, and we
plan to continue building on this success by offering customers high quality products
that respond to customer needs but remain steeped in local provenance.
We’re delighted to be playing our part in helping shine a light on Northern Ireland’s
strong food credentials.”
