Silver Hill; gold standard
When Silver Hill Duck began operations in Ireland in 1962, it consisted of founders Ronnie and Lyla Steele, and six top-quality ducks. Over time these were developed into a unique breed, the ‘Silver Hill Duck’. The company now boasts 240 employees, six breeding sites and one production base, generating 82,500 ducks per week. Managing Director Micheál Briody acknowledged that the company owes much of its success to the exceptional quality of its product. Report by Phil Nicholls and Hannah Barnett.
