Looking to expand its product range, Finnegan’s took advantage of support from the Boyne Valley Food Hub to make the most of its potatoes.
Paul and Joe Finnegan of E Finnegan & Sons are award-winning potato specialists who grow and pack their produce on the family farm in the Boyne Valley, Co Meath. With over 500 acres, the farm is able to ensure a steady supply of top quality produce to retailers nationwide throughout the year.
Understanding the need to expand to ensure its continued success, Finnegan’s recently introduced a new range of Irish chilled chips, wedges and baked potatoes, with the produce sown, picked and packed on site, with a number of potential potato products ready to launch in the near future. Instrumental in the development of these new ranges was the support and advice from Gary O’Meara of the Boyne Valley Food Hub.
“The Boyne Valley Food Hub is a world-class platform to help our business grow and develop,” says Paul Finnegan. “This state-of-the-art research and development facility is of paramount importance to farming and food producing companies looking to improve their operations. It will be the foundation for food producers in the region to expand from a local level to national and international levels.”
