Heinz are celebrating the return of the Gaelic games this summer by searching for the country’s favourite local food producers with the launch of their latest competition.
The competition, which aims to create the Heinz [Seriously] Good Mayo All-Ireland Sandwich, a 32 ingredient sandwich featuring one ingredient nominated by the public from each county. The final sandwich recipe will be released ahead of the All-Ireland Final in August.
Speaking about the sandwich, David Adams, Head of Heinz Ireland, said: “We all love eating sandwiches and a match-day sandwich eaten on our laps either in the stands or at home is an integral part of any game. So we wanted to create something special for the return of the sport this summer. The final All-Ireland sandwich will contain 32 delicious ingredients, held lovingly together by lashings of our delicious Heinz [Seriously] Good Mayonnaise.
So, how does it work? To nominate Dublin’s best local food all you have to do is visit @heinzirl on Facebook and submit your favourite filling in the comments section. Nominations will be open until July, 23.
To coincide with the competition, Heinz have released a limited edition bottle of Heinz [Seriously] Good Mayo for Sam. To mark the 70th anniversary of Co. Mayo’s last win at the All-Ireland Final in 1951, just 1,951 bottles of Heinz [Seriously] Good Mayo for Sam will be available to buy for €3 through www.heinztohome.ie, but you better be quick as once they’re gone, they’re gone!
