It’s awards season in the agriculture and food production world, and our team is honoured to have been recognized by a number of fantastic organizations this fall. Here’s a look at some of the awards VG Meats recently received – a pretty great list, if we say so ourselves! Thank you to everyone who made this possible.
Royal Agricultural Winter Fair
The Royal Ag is an age-old tradition that brings together farmers, food producers, chefs and more. This year, VG Meats was pleased to be recognized with a total of five Royal Agricultural Winter Fair awards. We took second place in two categories for our Polskis Cheese Smoked Sausage and Beef Jerky. Our Polskis Smoked Sausage received fourth place standing in another category, our Mild Beef Sausage took sixth place and our Hot Beef Sausage took 10th place. What an honour to see our name listed so many times!
Ontario Independent Meat Processors
We’re proud to be associated with the Ontario Independent Meat Processors and were thrilled to take home a total of 13 awards at their 2019 gala. We received a Platinum Award for our Thick Cut Pork Side Bacon as well as Gold Awards for our Coffee-Rubbed Cowboy Breakfast Bacon, Coffee-Rubbed Back Bacon, Beef Pastrami, Boneless Country Style Smoked Ham, Chipotle Rubbed Turkey Breast, Beef Salami, Rock Pepper Sausage and BBQ Beef. We also took home Silver Awards for our Pulled Pork, Beef Bacon and Smoked Turkey Breast. If you haven’t tasted all of these great VG Meats products yet, let this be what motivates you to check them out!
Simcoe Chamber of Commerce
Finally, we are very proud to have won Agriculture Business of the Year from the Simcoe Chamber of Commerce. This is truly an honour for us as we are very grateful to be a part of the greater Simcoe community, both as business owners and longtime residents of the area.
Again, a big thank you to everyone who helped make these achievements possible: our fantastic staff, our wonderful families, our industry colleagues, and of course, our amazing customers. Here’s to another great year!
