Meet Margaret, Ken and Thomas. They supply us with the best quality eggs, fish and olive oil at the best possible price. So you can buy the best for around a third less.
SuperValu Free Range Eggs
Meet Margaret Farrelly and her son Killian. When we asked them to supply eggs for our new SuperValu Range they knew it was a tall order; producing eggs of the highest quality but at a more affordable price.
Margaret’s chickens roam the farm, getting as much daylight as possible because the amount of sunlight enhances the quality of the egg. And at night music is piped into the coop, keeping the chickens contented. What’s more, the Farrellys have also helped create employment with 15 full time staff – in addition to working with 19 local farmers.
SuperValu Fresh Fish.
Meet Ken Ecock. His family business supplies our new SuperValu Range with most of our fresh fish as well as smoked salmon, prawns and fish fingers that taste just as good as the best selling brands… but at a third less.
Before the sun is even up, Ken is out talking to fishermen, finding the best fish on offer every morning. Fresh fish is hand filleted as soon as the catch is brought in at Howth and then delivered to our fish counter. Our prepared fresh fish is created using unique recipes especially developed for the new SuperValu Range.
Ken’s family have also helped create over 100 full time jobs – as well as supporting the work of Irish fishermen.
SuperValu Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
Meet Thomas Hengy. He supplies our new SuperValu Range with olive oil that tastes just as good as the best selling brand… but at a third less.
Nestled in the Andalusian hills, Thomas’ business has been dedicated to producing the best possible olive oil for almost 100 years. Quality is key, so the olives are picked at just the right time, and then pressed immediately to capture their full aroma and taste. The Master Taster then tests the oil to make sure
the quality is unsurpassable, before bottling there and then.
It’s no great surprise then that their Extra Virgin Olive Oil recently won a gold star Great Taste award.
