Kettyle Irish Foods has won a £1m contract to supply premium beef and lamb to the Gulf.

The Northern Irish company will supply 40-day-aged beef and 14-day-aged lamb to retailer LuLu as well as the Raffles Hotel Group.

“This is immensely significant business for us in one of the fastest-growing markets for premium quality food,” said MD Maurice Kettyle.

Kettyle was hoping for further growth in the region, it said.
