About the Company
Bellew Food Company specialises in added value partially cooked products and operates within a purpose-built manufacturing facility located at the Finnegan family farm in County Meath. The company produces a range of partially cooked chilled convenient, healthy, and versatile potato products under the Finnegan’s brand. It supplies Dunnes, Supervalu and independent retailers in Ireland. Bellew is committed to providing a socially conscious potato meal solution made with 100% authenticity and credibility.
This FUSION project will embed a technical and new product development capability within the company to increase Irish retail and food service market penetration, and enter export retail and food service markets, with existing and new added value vegan products, and to improve processes from preparation and cooking to portioning and chilling. New products will include stuffed peppers, vegan sausages, burgers, chili con carne and Bolognese. The investment in manufacturing processes will increase capacity, reduce waste, and enable product range extension.
