John Stone Fine Foods is an international, gourmet, dry-aged beef company that supplies high-quality beef and lamb globally from Co. Longford. John Stone, the chairman, has been dry-ageing beef and lamb since 1975 and has been a pioneer in the beef industry for over 50 years. The company’s beef is dry-matured and cut to a kitchen-ready standard, which prioritises kitchen yield and food cost. Its cuts are 'centre of the plate' for fine dining and steak house concepts.
It continues its commitment to innovation and standards with the achievement of the award of the National Halal Mark. The introduction of a new 180g dry-aged beef burger complements its 227g gourmet steak burger, using custom blends of prime-aged beef to produce a home-made texture with the succulence to match. John Stone is committed to providing a product with total traceability sourced from prime cattle from traditional beef breeds. These animals have grazed, free range, on the green pastures of Ireland and have a natural diet, combined with a natural environment.
John Stone is also a verified member of Origin Green through its partner, Kepak Group. Consistency in its products is something John Stone prides itself on, ensuring that beef is dry-aged to perfection every time. The company has a dedicated team of experts who carefully select the product, as well as European Food Safety Inspection Service (EFSIS), British Retail Consortium, European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) and Emirates International Accreditation Centre (EIAC) standards for halal. John Stone beef is served at the best hotels and restaurants globally.
