A Honiton company has been given a royal seal of approval for its bacon.

A BACON curer in Honiton has been given a royal stamp of approval for the quality of its bacon.

Denhay Farms Ltd, which has a site in the Heathpark Industrial Estate, has been awarded a Royal Warrant by Prince Charles for the high standard of its bacon.

The managing director of Denhay Farms Ltd said: “It is superb and is a real accolade for the staff.

“It is incredible for their work to be rewarded.”

Royal Warrants are a mark of recognition to individuals or companies, who have supplied goods or services to the royal household for at least five years.

Denhay Farms Ltd was given the honour in January and it’s two brands, Denhay and Spoiltpig, will now carry the Royal Warrant.

It is the first time a Royal Warrant has been given by Prince Charles to bacon curers.
