"Love Mexican" is an artisan family run small food business located in Ballinhassig, Co. Cork. It was set up at the end of 2014 by Mike Currane, with great support and help from his wife Madeline. Mike, an architect, and Madeline, a teacher, have two young children, Ella and Aaron, and created Love Mexican as a result of their own longstanding love for Mexican Food (from their many travel adventures together) and what they felt was an absence of family friendly nutritious and healthy wholesome ready meals in the freezers in our supermarkets.
An innovative, unique and differentiating new handmade food product was born! Healthy, wholesome, nutritious, convenient and of course delicious!
At "Love Mexican", we're delighted to be part of the Food Academy programme and with some great advice on encouragement from SuperValu along the way, the first batch of products (a range of handmade frozen burritos) made it onto the shelves towards the end of 2015.
Our spicy vegetarian, shredded chicken and ground beef burritos each contain 3 handmade original recipes, including our special authentic black beans and brown rice mix. They consist of close to 30 individual all-natural ingredients wrapped up in a Flour tortilla. They are packed full of goodness and very versatile - ideal for the busy professional, hard-working college student, a lunch time meal for school or for a family dinner.
The response from SuperValu customers to date has been brilliant and sales are steadily growing. A number of jobs have already been created, with the burrito range shortly to be launched into even more SuperValus and additional new products are in development. It looks almost certain that "Love Mexican" will be adding to their team again over the coming months.
Love your life, love what you eat!
