Arrow

We’re proud of our heritage.

But it’s the future we’re really excited about. There are new markets out there, and new customer and consumer wants to be met.
There are so many opportunities ahead for us. Come and help us take them.

WHAT WE DO

Put simply, we do food. But that’s just part of the story. We innovate. We lead markets. And we make some of the most-loved brands out there.

We’re a leading supplier of chilled and frozen food products in the UK and Ireland, and part of the world-leading Kerry Group. Focusing on dairy, meat, and meal solutions, we’re home to many of our markets’ best-performing and best-loved brands. You’ll find our private-label products and ready meals in pretty much every supermarket in the country. And we have a presence in the home baking and hot-food-to-go markets too.

We make our products in manufacturing facilities throughout Ireland and the UK, and distribute them nationwide and beyond. Along with the food, we supply quality, value and service to our customers.

Behind all of this, you’ll find tireless product innovation. Consumer tastes continue to change, and we respond with creative, competitive ideas that keep them delighted – and keep us growing. New ideas are our lifeblood. This is why we welcome them from everyone here.

Our Business

We don’t lead the way in just one category.
We lead the way in three.

Our brands and business are built around three core food divisions. They’re the areas we focus on, and they’re where many of our big ideas take shape. But they’re not all we do. We’re also home to the iconic, 100% British Homepride flour brand, having acquired the business (and the bowler-hatted Fred) back in 1998. And we’ve recently added the Rollover business to the fold, which builds our presence in the competitive hot-food-on-the-go market.

MEATS

This is where you’ll find our breakfast, cooked meats and chilled savoury snacks. It’s home to household favourites such as Mattessons, Denny, Richmond, Galtee and Walls.

DAIRY

This one’s all about cheese, yoghurt and dairy spreads. It’s home to brands such as LowLow, Cheestrings, Dairygold, Pure and Charleville Cheese.

MEAL SOLUTIONS

This division includes chilled and frozen ready meals, and ready-to-cook meals, and it provides private-label products to almost all the big supermarkets. It’s home to brands like Pure, City Kitchen and Sharwoods.

Our brands, customers and consumers.

Big brands, big names, and big numbers. They’re all here.

See any names you recognise? You probably do, because our products can be found in kitchens, supermarkets, petrol stations, corner shops and entertainment venues the length and breadth of the UK and Ireland. We’re starting to become part of life in Europe too.

Here are a just a few of our amazing brands. We have plenty of others, and we’re always looking to expand the family even more.

Our
Customers

Almost every leading supermarket, and quite a few restaurant
chains too, trust us to supply private label products. In fact, no
one supplies more private label dairy spreads or processed
cheese slices in the UK than we do. We’re also the leading supplier
of chilled and frozen ready meals. Our customers rely on us for
high standards and faultless delivery. And we make sure we never
let them down.

Consumers

Millions of people have grown up with our brands. Tens of millions eat our food every day. We’re behind everything from family favourite sausages and authentic curries to healthy vegetable pots and dairy-free spreads. So it’s fair to say that our consumers are a large and diverse bunch. And we’re committed to coming up with new ways to tempt them, and reach new people.
