Kettyle Foods was launched in 2004 as a specialist in the provision of high quality beef targeted at the food service sector, particularly high-end restaurants, in Great Britain, the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.

Based at Lisnaskea in the Fermanagh lake district, Kettyle is now part of Linden Foods, one of the UK's leading meat processors.

The core product is 'Irish Grass Fed Dry-Aged Beef' and is in demand from chefs and retailers due to the exceptional flavour and tenderness produced as a result of the highly controlled maturation process.

The dry ageing process is a traditional process that requires the meat to be matured on the bone for a minimum of 21 days.

The company, which sources its meat mainly from local Aberdeen Angus and Hereford farmers, has invested heavily in plant and machinery to provide a facility to produce the high quality product to discerning customers. It has also invested heavily in systems to meet the ever-increasing demands of the retailers.

Maurice Kettyle and his team of nine qualified butchers use their experience and skill to consistently deliver the highest quality of specified beef and lamb cuts to their customers.

Crafted cuts of hand selected naturally matured prime:
Irish Beef
Banquet Royale Rose Veal
Fermanagh Free Range Chicken
Silverhill Duck
Kettyle Guinness premium beef burger

In the UK, the company supplies Tesco as well as foodservice organisations

Since 2010 M&S has listed Kettyle's dry-aged fillet, sirloin and rib-eye steaks in its premium Special Reserve category in all its food stores across the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland

In addition to Germany, the company's most important market on mainland Europe, Kettyle Irish Foods sells beef, lamb and bacon to 15 markets. Customers include major retail chains

Kettyle also supplies high end restaurants in GB, NI and ROI
