Linden Foods launches gourmet burger range
Northern Irish meat processor Linden Food Group has introduced a new 20-strong range of gourmet burgers.

Launched under its Turf & Clover - Honest Irish Meat brand, the range has been created from premium meat from lamb and chicken, taken from its own network of Northern Irish farms.

"The gourmet burger now has pride of place on restaurant menus, in bespoke burger bars and has crossed over to retail,"​ said Linden Foods marketing manager Pauline Gordon.

"The gourmet burger not only tells, but also empowers, the story of culinary excellence, diversity and innovation. What we have done with the Turf & Clover range is to carry forward the legacy of excellence and innovation with a sharp focus on taste."

Turf & Clover's overall range features a variety of meats, including grass-fed beef, chicken, pork, lamb and venison, and comes in cuts such as brisket, chuck, cheek, rib and flank. Products are available in dry-aged, marrow melt, quarter pounder and slider form.

Kettyle Irish Foods, a subsidiary of Linden Foods, has also been part of the new burger development.

"In creating burgers of distinction, the meat must be the hero,"​ added Gordon. "The freshness of the meat is essential in marking a stand-out burger. As we use our own meat exclusively from our own farm suppliers, our burgers just can't be any fresher."

In developing the range, Linden's team of marketers, chefs and product developers researched breed attributes, cut selection, maturation techniques, grind size, blend, and fat content.

"Our journey to find culinary perfection and outstanding taste started with the best grass-fed meat possible,"​ explained Gordon. "Whatever way Turf & Clover burgers are served - with buns, sauces, relishes or fries - a door to a world of flavour possibilities is opened. We believe we have created a next-generation range of burgers.

"We believe we've created burgers with the texture of a homemade pattie lovingly prepared in the kitchen, open and fluffy, a firm bite yet unquestionably succulent. All our burgers are also gluten-free with no compromise on quality."

The range is available to both the retail and foodservice sectors.
