Boyne Valley Flavour’s Producers Collaborate to Create Boyne Valley Flavour’s Food Boxes.

 

We are living in extraordinary times, many of us have had our lives and livelihoods turned upside down with the arrival of COVID-19 to our shores. We are all trying to continue as best we can in this new world and for many of us that means adapting how we work or run our businesses. In recent days many of the producers in Boyne Valley Flavour’s have collaborated on developing a new initiative to help their businesses survive in these difficult times- a range of Boyne Valley Flavour’s Boxes that can be ordered online and delivered to your home. As many people are trying to avoid the supermarkets this initiative will give them an opportunity to get the finest of Irish produce delivered right to their door. In addition to the produce customers will also have the option to add 2 x 250ml bottle of hand sanitiser from Listoke Distillery. Rated at 62% (recommended strength for Covid 19).

 

The initiative has been spearheaded by RuairÍ Browne who along with Laura Menamy is the proprietor of Great Northern Larder which make a delicious range of high-quality sauces and rubs. RuairÍ and Laura have this week dedicated their website, time and packing facilities to helping local food producers across the Boyne Valley and those in isolation to come together at this time.
