milgro award

Milgro, the onion people, have proven they know their onions better than anyone with their recent win in the Farming Life/Danske Bank awards. The Limavady based company enjoyed victory in the Small Agri-Food Business of the Year category.

The awards, which are in their fourth year, have become a pivotal date in the agricultural calendar, recognising the achievements of those in the industry and their remarkable contribution to the economy. This year’s ceremony was attended by more than 330 people.

It has proven a successful award season for the family run business, as this win comes after Milgro’s crispy onions were also Finalists for the Irish Food Quality awards in September. After farming their land for several generations, the Miller family have become Northern Ireland’s largest producer of onions, with 60 tonnes of produce leaving them every week destined for the shelves of your local supermarket.

Gerald Miller, MD, commented on their recent win “We are extremely proud to win this award. Our growth in recent years has been down to the surge in consumer demand for locally grown produce and products.

We have exciting plans for further growth which will hopefully be boosted by Northern Ireland’s Year of Food taking place in 2016. All of this is possible due to the work and dedication of our staff.”

The fertile soil in Roe Valley, on the North Coast, is ideal for producing a range of delicious and tasty onions. Milgro’s current range includes red onions, brown onions, shallots and garlic including Milgro’s own Crispy Onions range supplying Sainsbury’s Spar Tesco Asda across the province plus further afield In the ROI and Mainland. Their recent achievements are a well-deserved affirmation of the quality of their products and their relentless hard work in evolving their business to where it is today.
