Silver Hill Duck
Founded in 1962, Silver Hill Duck is a fully integrated premium Duck Producer. All aspects of their duck production are owned and controlled by Silver Hill Duck, from breeding, egg production, hatching and selection, to processing, cooking and packaging. Their distinctive hybrid duck is exclusive to Silver Hill Duck. It has been continually developed over the years, to produce a duck that is full of flavour, succulent, tender and consistent in its quality.
In March 2019 Fane Valley Group acquired Silver Hill Duck. Fane Valley is a progressive agri-food business, based in Northern Ireland and has been Silver Hill’s feed nutrition partner for over 20 years. The announcement secured ongoing investment in the development of the existing production site at Emyvale to keep pace with rapidly growing global demand for the famous Silver Hill Duck. The company now supplies quality duck and duck products to outlets the world over, including South East Asia.
