Randalls are supporting local farmers in their latest collaboration with Trinity Manor Farm and Valley Foods. The local company has hand-selected the farm, which is part of the Red Tractor (assured food standards) and LEAF organisation (linking environment and farming).
Trinity Manor Farm are focused on producing high-quality beef and pride themselves on the welfare of their herd, encouraging soil health and being as organic and environmentally friendly as possible. All the efforts have ensured that the Trinity Manor Farm burger, designed by Randalls has gained a Genuine Jersey stamp of approval.
Martin Mitchell, General Manager at Valley Foods, said “It’s great to see a large local company like Randalls take initiative to create their local produce and support local on a deeper level. At Valley Foods, we are delighted to be a part of producing the exclusive Jersey burger recipe for Randalls at our butchery department”.
Martin added: “By supporting projects like this we are heavily reducing our carbon footprint, and most importantly, especially during these times, supporting local”.
The final recipe has been under development for several months, undergoing 8 tastings to perfect the recipe and ensure the flavouring and production are of the highest standard, whilst ensuring everything is produced locally.
Nigel Godfrey, Operations Director at Randalls, who has lead this initiative said: “At Randalls, we’re working on more ‘Farm to Fork’ collaborations and are constantly looking to support local producers and fishermen. We are delighted to strengthen our partnerships by offering a burger that is locally produced and exclusive to Randalls. Not only does this help the wider community, but it also ensures that ’supporting local’ is distributed properly. After months of development, we are thrilled to now have these on our menus”.
