Irish people love sandwiches. At Freshways we love them too. In 2013, there was a growing appetite for healthier, higher quality lunchtime offerings. We saw that choices were limited and with Freshways, previously owned by Kerry Group, we wanted to serve this evolving Irish market.
Both former Kerry Group employees, with an entrepreneurial spirit, we knew we had a bit of a sandwich mountain to climb.
We had a great product, an ambition to make lunchtime special, a brilliant team and a truckload of determination.
All of this has served us well. Today we are proud to supply over 1,300 customers across retail, specialist food service and travel.”
Being part of and supporting our local community is important to us. Around 85% of the more than 400 strong Freshways team come from the Dublin areas around our Poppintree headquarters.
Some of the organisations we support include the Better Ballymun initiative, PACE Social Enterprise and INSPIRED Friends of the Culinary Arts. We’re always looking for fresh ways to give back.
