Findlater Wine and Spirits has merged with Robert Roberts, Batchelors Coffee Company and Odlums Ingredients to form a new Irish specialist food and beverage business – Findlater & Co.  The new business, which will operate from a state-of-the-art facility in Tallaght, Dublin, will manufacture and distribute premium products in coffee, wines and spirits, along with professional bakery and culinary ingredients, to the out-of-home (OOH) channel, including food service and hotel/restaurant/café (HoReCa) segments.

Underpinning the Findlater & Co business is a new end-to-end operational structure that provides customers with bespoke solutions from personalised manufacturing to marketing support and branded goods. This model is scalable, flexible and can be tailored to meet individual customer’s needs.

Leading the business is newly appointed managing director, Oliver Sutherland, who brings extensive experience in the food industry to this role. Oliver Sutherland was Chief Commercial Officer at Valeo Foods Group and, most recently, Chief Strategy and Business Development Officer at the company. He joined Valeo Foods Group from Nestlé Ireland where he was Managing Director.

Oliver Sutherland comments: “Findlater & Co is an exciting new out-of-home channel supplier bringing a range of premium specialist food and drink products to the market, including a number of instantly recognisable brand names. Our team is passionate about further strengthening the product portfolio, offering unique and competitive solutions to customers founded on a significant increase in service capability. Not only does this improve our competitive edge, but it also offers our customers a number of new ways that we can support their growth. Front and centre of our business strategy is offering consumers a better-quality product and a more convenient service, consistently flexible to accommodate their needs.”

The Findlater name boasts a rich and storied heritage dating back to 1823, when Alexander Findlater established his first whiskey store in Dublin.

Findlater & Co is a part of the Valeo Foods Group. The business employs 75 people at its headquarters in Tallaght.
