Monaghan food producer Pollocks’ Pickles and Preserves is celebrating this week after earning a one-star Gold Great Taste Award for its marmalade.
The business only commenced in 2010 but has already earned many local, regional and now international accolades for its jams, pickles and chutneys.
The business prides itself on homemade produce stirred and poured in the traditional way. It boasts that there is nothing in their jams only fruit and sugar, their pickles are fat-free, low in salt and sugar – really, the way your mother or grandmother would have made them.
Glennys Pollock said this week: “We are delighted with this award. Winning a Great Taste Award recognises the hard work and dedication that goes into making superb foods.”
From an early age Glennys developed a love for making good food – thanks to mother Lillian and father Bob Magee, well-known grocers in Belturbet, Co Cavan. Glennys’ one regret is that her parents have not lived to see her establish her new award-winning enterprise.
Meredith has helped and supported her all the way over the last 12 months. He is responsible for the creative hat decorations on the jars.
