What our members say
Shane Divilly – Divilly Brothers
"Love Irish Food assistance in achieving brand recognition and helping you to grow your product with retailers is fantastic. I would highly recommend membership of Love Irish Food to any business that is engaged in the supply of Irish-produced food and drink products.”
Kevin Donnelly, MD – Britvic Ireland
We believe in the power and credibility of the Love Irish Food Logo. It certainly gives us an advantage with our customers
Patrick O’Sullivan – Gallaghers Bakery
Love Irish Food actively promotes and supports Irish-produced food brands and Patrick is convinced that carrying the Love Irish Food logo on pack is helping to get the locally produced message across to shoppers. “Consumers want to know more about the products they are buying from a sustainability point of view and also because they want to be sure they can trust the brand when it comes to provenance and traceability”
Nigel Scully – Cuisine de France
Cuisine de France joined Love Irish Food in early 2021. “We have been involved with a number of Love Irish Food campaigns over the last 12 months, both in-store and through their social media platforms,” he says. “And Love Irish Food were very supportive when we launched new products. Consumers will continue to support Irish businesses, so having the Love Irish Food logo on our products is a great selling point. We would definitely recommend membership"
Noreen Gallagher – Plant-It
Noreen Gallagher believes that Plant-It’s membership of Love Irish Food has helped the company to establish its quality credentials and to make its sales pitch to the trade, not just in Ireland but overseas. “Love Irish Food is such a positive story and Irish consumers have always been very loyal to Irish brands that they know and trust”.
Tom Gannon, Niall McGrath – Cali Cali Foods
The (Love Irish Food) organisation has played a key role in the development of the Cali Cali brand. ...We took a stand in the Love Irish Food tent at Bloom in May 2019. It turned out to be a massive sampling and consumer feedback session...the feedback we got from consumers and buyers who attended led us to adapt some of our flavours and packaging'
Sean Murphy – East Coast Bakehouse
The brand exposure that East Coast Bakehouse has gained through its Love Irish Food membership has been invaluable.
Tom Cronin – Rye River Brewing
The logo helps us to promote ourselves as an authentic Irish brand, so it verifies who we are and where we are from, and that is particularly important in the highly competitive craft beer sector.
Maxine Hyde – Ballymaloe Foods
“It is wonderful to be part of a community that represents Irish food brands. This is so important to us in Ballymaloe Foods. We especially love being involved in the Love Irish Food Marquee at the Bloom Festival. We look forward to seeing the ways they continue to bring this community together.”
John Flahavan – Flahavan’s
Love Irish Food …aligns very well with our business, promoting Irish food brands and local sourcing. Love Irish Food helps support family businesses like ours, who are committed to sourcing locally and keeping jobs in our small village communities.
Máirín Uí Lionaird – Folláin
"As Founder members of Love Irish Foods, we think it is high time for Irish food manufacturers to be recognized for their enormous contribution to the Irish economy. Follain has been creating wealth, both on a local and national level for the past 37 years. Locally by employing 38 people and nationally by paying corporation tax as well as PAYE for our employees. Love Irish Food is the best and most genuine organization for the promotion of Irish companies and their products."
Micheal McCambridge – McCambridge Bread
Our membership of Love Irish Food has had an extremely positive impact on our business, being a member of the organisation further endorses our position with Irish consumers as an Irish family food manufacturer.
Tom Kearney and Denis O Driscoll – Spice O’ Life
Having the Love Irish Food logo on our products communicates a very clear message of high quality to the consumer & emphasises the fact that all of our products are Irish-made.
David Keeling – Keelings
We really enjoy our association with Love Irish Food and we use the Love Irish Food logo in all of our packaging on Irish grown seasonal produce…I love the concept of Love Irish Food…
Mary Sadlier – Coole Swan
Thanks to Love Irish Food for all the support, emails and follow throughs. I am glad we are members …The atmosphere at the moment is tough and very isolating but we really feel very ‘’looked after’’ by you guys...someone cares and that is gold dust right now.
