Sandwich firm expands into Ireland

Belfast, Northern Ireland: Bite Group in Enniskillen is to distribute its convenience foods to the Republic of Ireland.

The company supplies fresh sandwiches, tortilla wraps, paninis, baguettes and deli ingredients daily using temperature-controlled vans from depots in Belfast, Dublin, Cork and Galway.

Current customers include Starbucks, Dunnes, Musgrave and SuperValu. Managing director Michael Keogh said: “We are now firmly established as the largest and most successful manufacturer and distributor of private label snack and convenience products on the island of Ireland,” he said.

“What is also strategically important for us is that the new business enhances our position substantially in an immensely important market outside Northern Ireland. While we have been operating in the Republic for some time through our depots in Dublin, Cork and Galway, the new business moves us on to another level.

“We worked very closely with the new customer in the development of products to their requirements and also in other key areas such as packaging and distribution.”
