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.

Julie Sinnamon, chief executive of Enterprise Ireland, says: “Enterprise Ireland’s strategy is to support Irish companies to build scale and to expand their reach into international markets and we are delighted to support Dawn Farms as they enter into this new phase of growth and expansion.  Enterprise Ireland has been working with Dawn Farms since its establishment and we’ve witnessed first-hand the company’s growth and evolution, deepening their presence in the UK as well as diversifying into new markets in the Eurozone region.
