Genovese Black Olive Tapenade on sourdough with tomato, basil and mozzerella

A Passion for Taste

We are the very Irish company with the very Italian name.

Established in 1999, we are the oldest fresh pesto producers in Ireland and epitomise what clean food is all about. We hand make our range in small batches, blending the taste of fresh quality ingredients and using techniques that allow those flavours to develop naturally and unhurried. We couple our understanding of the craft of making pesto with a deep love for that craft, for artisan food in general and for those who will, ultimately, enjoy the flavoursome foods we produce.

We respect the provenance of our raw materials and the seasonality of our ingredients. We live by an ethos of sustainability, from the sunny farms that produce our basil and extra virgin olive oil, to the not so sunny creamery that produces our vegetarian cheese, we know and care where the ingredients we use are grown and produced, and are committed to bringing you a range of clean, honest food.

We are Origin Green verified, which means we live by a code of ethics that reflects our beliefs in sustainability and make every effort to reduce our footprint on this planet.

We are a specialist gourmet company that believes in producing hugely flavoursome pesto’s and tapenades from great ingredients. We pride ourselves on our taste and the purity of the ingredients we use. All products are Gluten Free and we are listed with the Coeliac Society of Ireland. We produce in small batches and use absolutely no artificial additives, preservatives or colourings. Our range is free from GMO and is Low in Salt.
