Rhug Estate granted Royal Warrant of Appointment
Organic meat produced on the Rhug Estate in Corwen in Wales is reportedly the first in the country to be granted a Royal Warrant of Appointment to HRH The Prince of Wales.
As well as supplying organic meat (including Welsh lamb, bison, chicken and turkey) to Prince Charles, the farm can also put the Three Feathers Badge on the meat it produces for customers.
Lord Newborough, owner of the Rhug Estate, is “totally thrilled” to have been granted a Royal Warrant of Appointment.
He said: “Being awarded the Royal Warrant is a dream come true, I am so thrilled for my team at Rhug who work so hard to embrace the highest standards of animal welfare and all the rewards of sustainable farming we practise here at Rhug.
“To have this recognition means everything. We are proud to fly the Welsh flag wherever we sell our meat in the world. This is an honour that cannot be bought and only earnt.”
The Royal Warrant of Appointment Certificate, issued this month, will state Rhug Organic Farm is certified, by command of His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales, to supply organic meat to His Royal Highness’ households.
Rhug has been supplying meat to the Royal households for the past six years including Welsh lamb, chickens, turkeys and bison meat. The estate overall incorporates the farm, the wholesale meat business, the cutting plant, the butcher’s counter at Rhug Farm shop and Rhug’s stall at London’s Borough Market.
Lord Newborough added: “It might be my name on the certificate when it arrives but the Royal Warrant is wonderful recognition and reward for the hard work, vision and dedication to sustainable farming shown by the whole team here at the Rhug who all share the same vision and passion and rewards for sustainable farming.”
