A Full Ingredient Solution
We offer a one-stop shop for cooked meat ingredients, plant-based proteins and fermented and dried sausage products.
We put the customer at the heart of everything we do, which is why, for your convenience, all our products are suitable for application and ready-to-eat. Our cooked and fermented meat and plant-based ingredients can be used as pizza toppings and sandwich fillings, and in prepared meals, snacks and salads. They are also available in Individually Quick Frozen (IQF) and Chilled formats.
All of our products are produced in state-of-the-art facilities, which include two production sites in Ireland, one in Northampton, U.K. and a fourth in Saarland, Germany. Continuous investment across our plants means we operate some of the most modern cooked meat facilities in the world.
Pepperoni, Salami & Chorizo
The safest fermented & dried ingredients in the marketplace
Our primary concern as a B2B supplier is to protect our customers’ brand and ensure your product delivers on your consumer promise on the ingredients used. Building on 33 years of experience, expertise and continuous investment in our process, we offer a unique food safe ferment, heat treatment and drying process that delivers an independently validated ready-to-eat (RTE) finished product. This means our RTE products can be used directly in pizza, sandwich, meals and snacks without a need for further cooking. We bring you a taste of tradition with a focus on kitchen cupboard ingredients, product consistency and security of supply.
Everything tastes better with bacon
Our passion for bacon is evident in the range of cooked bacon we produce every day at our dedicated bacon plant in Northampton, UK. Our culinary team develop cooked bacon products that evoke true bacon flavour using a perfected combination of traditional curing, smoking, grilling, and microwave technology. True to our belief that the possibilities for bacon use are limitless, we are constantly developing new flavours and cures to meet market trends across pizza, prepared meals, sandwiches and snacking.
A flavour adventure, from light to crispy cook
We offer a number of different flavour profiles, including natural smoke and flavoured cures as well as various cook levels (light, medium, dark and very dark).
