Clean Food, Expertly Made

If you believe in clean, additive free, healthier food then our brand is for you.

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 healthier 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 additive free food and a passion for producing hugely flavoursome products using minimal processing.

We are a specialist gourmet company that believes in producing hugely flavoursome products from great ingredients. We pride ourselves on the taste and health benefits of the ingredients we use.

Our small batch production techniques use absolutely no additives, preservatives or colourings. Our products are free from GMO and are Low Salt. All our products are fresh, therefore they require refrigeration.

All products are Gluten Free and manufactured in a totally Gluten Free environment. All products are either Vegetarian or Vegan. We are listed with the Coeliac Society of Ireland.

“Every year thousands of products enter Blas na hEireann/Irish Food Awards but only the best are shortlisted and from there, only the most discerning products are chosen for an award. This year we have been lucky enough to win three awards in different categories which we are thrilled about and which guarantees you the customer, that you are buying the very best of products from one of Irelands leading food producers.”
