He continues: “Great ingredients make great food and great ingredients come from outstanding food innovation.  Consumers’ tastes are constantly evolving.  We are passionate students of the marketplace and closely monitor consumer trends.  We are seeing more demand for home-style authentic meats, new flavours and new snacking options as well as on-going interest in health and wellness across the range of meats that we cook.”

The investment will enhance Dawn Farms’ capacity to research trends, to develop new products and exciting new production technologies while ensuring that the highest standards of food safety and security are upheld.

Dawn Farms is an inspiring example of a company that demonstrates global ambition when it comes to its market export potential and is sending a very positive message to every Irish agri-food business, that it is possible to build an innovative and scalable company that can compete at the highest levels internationally.”
