Country Crest Farming
As a key part of our green ethos and focus on sustainability, Country Crest ensures that as many of our needs as possible are satisfied by local resources. These include potatoes, onions, beef and cereals, as well as poultry and meat which is sourced from our Bord Bia-approved farmers.
Country Crest is the largest grower of potatoes in Ireland. These are grown locally in Dublin and Meath, and through our network of trusted Irish growers, around the island. We are also the largest and only commercial grower of Irish onions, which are grown in Dublin and Wexford.
Winter and spring cereals, as well as grasses, are also grown here on the Agri-Food site, thereby creating the most sustainable food sources for our Ballymaguire Foods, Meal Solutions division.
In addition, we now boast our own Cattle Feeding unit on site. This allows us complete and assured traceability of quality beef, specifically the cuts we use for our prepared foods division. Traceability is an integral part of our ethos and a practice that remains of the highest priority across all divisions: fresh produce, farming and prepared foods manufacturing.’
