Two leading Wexford based businesses has been included in the shortlist for the Irish Independent's top 30 food producers.

Killowen Farm and O'Neill's Dry Cure Bacon Company have expressed delight at being included in the list which highlights the top 30 Irish food products.

Renowned food writer Katy McGuinness shortlisted some of the exceptional products that are home-grown in Ireland and the Wexford businesses are delighted to be among those chosen for the quality of their produce.

With regard to O'Neill's Dry Cure Bacon Co, Ms McGuinnes said: 'We Irish love our pork products and bacon is a subject on which people have strong opinions. But the thought of a bacon sandwich made with dry-cured bacon from O'Neill's in Enniscorthy is the one that sets more hearts pounding than any other.'

She was also full of praise for Killowen Farm and when commenting on its product she said: 'This live yogurt is made from the milk of the Dunne family's own herd of cows, with real fruit and just a little sugar. No additives or preservatives are used. It is simple, and simply delicious.'

The two companies are both members of the Wexford Food Family and their range of products can be found in local SuperValu stores and independent retailers across Co Wexford.
