Siobhán Joyce set up her business, Bowl-a-Granola, in her home kitchen in 2012 both through necessity following redundancy and a desire to change paths and work in the food industry. She had spent years working as an environmental officer and was happy with the challenge of a complete change. She began producing handmade granola and muesli mostly for sale at Galway’s farmers markets and a few independent shops.
When the opportunity came for Galway food producers to join the Food Academy with SuperValu and the LEO, Siobhán had moved her production to a commercial kitchen. She has further plans to expand the business at an ongoing rate.
