With the reopening of indoor dining now firmly on the horizon and foodservice finally starting to show signs of returning to some degree of normality, the hunt for Ireland’s best burger has begun thanks to National Burger Day.

In support of the foodservice sector, Kepak’s fourth annual National Burger Day on August 12th is encouraging customers to get out and have their say by voting for their favourite burger, while also showing some much-needed support for local food outlets and operators as they emerge from recent pandemic related closures.

Hundreds of Irish food businesses of all categories and sizes are set to take part in the search for Ireland’s best burger, including locally Galty Valley (Kilbehenny).

To top it off, for every burger purchased and a photo shared online with the hashtag #nationalburgerday, a meal will be donated to Simon Communities across the country, with over 14,000 meals donated in 2020 as part of the campaign.

Irish burger enthusiasts know their stuff and according to recent research undertaken by Flipdish, the quintessential cheeseburger is by far the most popular burger order in Ireland, followed by classic and bacon burgers.

Votes from all corners of the country will be gathered and counted and Ireland’s Best Burger will be announced on National Burger Day, August 12th.

Voting is already underway and customers across the country have just over three weeks to cast their important vote online through the dedicated website – www.nationalburgerday.ie
