Natural and innovative products from Carol’s Stock Market in Derry
Carol’s Stock Market, a Food NI member company, has recently doubled production space in preparation for the launch of two new innovative products; all natural beef and chicken bone broth gravy.
Based in Derry and owned and run by Carol Banahan, Carol’s Stock Market has also been named as one of the finalists in the Great British and Northern Irish Food Entrepreneur of the year awards. The regional finals are scheduled to be held in Belfast on October 3rd.
The company has won awards and widespread acclaim for existing portfolio of natural chicken, beef and vegetable stock. The awards include UK Great Taste Awards and Blas na hEireann ‘Chefs’ Larder’.
Outlining the new products, Mrs Banahan says: “Our free range chicken gravy is made completely from scratch using locally sourced free range chicken. The base of the chicken gravy is made from our wholesome and delicious chicken broth which has been carefully simmered along with organic herbs and vegetables for many hours.
“Using caramelised shallots, fresh thyme and balsamic vinegar, we then thicken our gravy with organic cornflour to keep it gluten free. No fuss or mess, just heat and serve.
“Our beef gravy is made completely using locally sourced grass fed beef bones. The base of the gravy is made with our wholesome and delicious beef broth which has been carefully simmered along with organic herbs and vegetables for many hours.
“Again using caramelised shallots and balsamic vinegar, we then thicken our gravy with organic cornflour to keep it gluten free. No fuss or mess, just heat and serve,” adds Mrs Banahan.
The company’s products are widely available in delis and independent stores across the island of Ireland.
