Farm Fresh Foods

an image of the farm fresh foods familyThe Twomey family recognised that there was a gap in the market for freshly prepared high quality salads and therefore made the decision to sell a selection of fresh salads from their East Cork premises. In 1998 the family launched Farm Fresh Foods. SECAD funded a purpose-built production facility on the family farm.

The manager of farm Fresh Homemade Foods is Mr Pa Twomey and the company currently has a team of four staff members. Farm Fresh Homemade Foods distribute their products to retailers including a select range of SuperValu and Centra stores. They also supply fres salads to the catering trade.

“SECAD have played a vital supporting role in the growth of this business. Due to the assistance and funding received from SECAD, Farm Fresh Foods were able to reach new markets and expand as a business. The business is now thriving within a highly competitive market and SECAD have played a fundamental role in the support of Farm Fresh Foods in all their endeavours”.
