Jennings Potato Bread Slices were first manufactured according to an original recipe conceived in Ballyhaise, Co.Cavan in 1981. During the subsequent 35 years, this recipe has passed through 3 families and now the same original recipe is being produced by the Donnelly family in our bakery based in Cootehill, Co.Cavan. Around 5 years ago we introduced a second product, our original recipe Jennings Buttermilk Pancakes, which have proven to be very popular with our customers. Jennings products are made with only the finest ingredients. We cut each potato bread slice shaped to fit the pan and we still cook and flip every potato bread slice and pancake by hand to give you that authentic homemade taste.
We began our journey with the Food Academy programme 2 years ago and since then it has been instrumental in helping us to improve our turnover and spread the Jennings brand to hitherto unexplored regions of the country. We have engaged with new stores and new consumers and have received much positive growth and feedback. As a result of this our company has been fortunate enough to be able to offer our staff full-time positions, which in turn provides us with a dedicated work-force ready to meet this increased demand. The support given to us both at a strategic level and on the ground has been very encouraging and we have found SuperValu a great bunch of people to deal with.
