Prizes for Porridge

Flahavan’s has launched its inaugural National Porridge Awards 2022.

The competition will be open to the hotel sector and has been developed to help shine a light on the innovative ways hotels can play an important role in putting locally-sourced Irish oats at the heart of their breakfast experience.

“The idea of a National Porridge Awards has been on our radar for some time,” said Shane O’Hanrahan, Flahavan’s Foodservice Business Development Manager. “We want to acknowledge the innovative and creative ways hotel culinary teams can elevate the breakfast experience for their Irish and international guests by incorporating our world-class Irish wholegrain oats into their breakfast offerings. The time has come to celebrate and reward that effort.”

Entries for this year's awards must be submitted by 28th October 2022, and must, of course, incorporate Flahavan’s Oats – Ireland’s favourite porridge oats. Participants can submit their entry via the Flahavan’s website by completing a brief online form, as well as uploading photographs that best represent their entry. 

Eunice Power, well-known chef, food writer with the Irish Times, and contributor to RTE’s The Today Show  has been invited to judge the awards, which will be split into three categories:

1.    Best Classic Porridge
2.    Most Innovative Porridge
3.    Best Promotion of Porridge  
The entries will be whittled down to a shortlist of ten in total, which will be personally judged by Eunice Power along with a member of the Flahavan’s team at each hotel with the winner due to be announced by the end of November.
