Molloys Butchers Ardkeen have been named in the Best Top 10 Craft Butcher Shops in Ireland by the Associated Craft Butchers of Ireland (ACBI) at this year’s Craft Butchers Star Shop Awards held at ACBI’s National Gala Dinner and Awards Ceremony which took place at the K Club, Straffan, Co. Kildare Sunday October 29th. The awards were presented by the Minister of State for Food, Forestry and

Horticulture, Mr. Andrew Doyle, T.D.

Commenting on the prestige of making it into the Top 10 Craft Butcher Shops John Hickey, CEO of ACBI said:

"I would like to extend a very special word of congratulations to Molloys Butchers for achieving a win at the Craft Butchers Top Ten Star Shop awards; their commitment to excellence places them amongst the best Craft Butchers in the country".

This year the competition attracted over 90 Craft Butcher shop entries from across Ireland, with the top 10 shops being selected by an independent panel of judges. Each of the shops was mystery shopped and judged on its performance from a customer’s viewpoint.

John Hickey adds: "Our independent judges’ mystery shop each of the butcher shops in the manner of the customer. With Molloys Butchers Ardkeen the judges were very impressed with the overall fresh product range, store presentation and hygiene, customer care and the overall shopping experience."

"This is particularly pleasing as it is a team effort, our staff of Chris, Johnny, Vincent, Teresa, Hazel, Justyna, Bridget and Breda as well as our backroom team of Jack, Carmel and Aileen are committed to our product quality and service offering and I am delighted for them to be recognised for their efforts" said Keith Molloy. "Our customers play a huge part in our offering as we are in no doubt of their expectations and we will continue to raise the bar in our product offering with innovation and top level standards of customer service and hygiene" added Keith.

The Molloy Family have been trading in Waterford since 1932 and in the Ardkeen complex since 1981 and have recently launched online trading at which has added another dimension to their business. For the coming week there will be celebratory in store tastings, offers and giveaways to celebrate this magnificent achievement.
