Ór-Real Irish Butter Clinches Gold at the Irish Quality Food & Drink Awards 2023

In the realm of butter, where quality is paramount and tradition meets innovation, Ór-Real Irish Butter has once again proven its excellence by securing the prestigious Gold award at the Irish Quality Food & Drink Awards 2023. This remarkable achievement underscores the brand's unwavering commitment to crafting the finest Irish butter, and it's a testament to the enduring partnership between North Cork Creameries and their dedicated local farmers.

Pat Sheenan, CEO of North Cork Creameries, shared his thoughts on this remarkable win, saying, "We work with farmers we know best and whose families have been supplying milk to us for generations. This gives us full control over the quality of our milk that goes into Ór Real Irish Butter."

The story of Ór-Real Irish Butter is one deeply rooted in tradition, heritage, and a profound connection to the lush, verdant lands of North Cork. Nestled along the banks of the River Blackwater and within the shadow of the historic Kanturk Castle, this extraordinary location in North Cork provides the ideal environment for producing the highest-quality milk from contented, grass-fed cows.
