About the CompanyFolláin is a family run savoury and sweet preserves business, which emphasises wholesomeness and traditionally made products from nature at its best. From its modest beginning, with a team of three, hand preparing the fruit and cooking the jams and marmalades in the family kitchen, the company has grown substantially at its Ballymakeera factory to produce over 30 products, across the relish, pickle, jam, marmalade, sauce and seasonal categories. Folláin’ products are available from Tesco, SuperValu, Superquinn, Dunnes Stores, independent outlets and fine food shops nationwide. Folláin prides itself on using Irish ingredients wherever possible and works closely with producers to ensure its supply of only the best ingredients. The company has won numerous great taste awards for its products, and recently gave its jars a well-received makeover and ran a “Naturally Made From All Things Nice” campaign with the Irish Independent. This FUSION project will formalise the new product development system for Folláin branded and own label business opportunities, and bring new cooking sauce and other innovative, wholesome savoury and sweet preserve products to existing and new customers.
