Mimo and her husband, Seamus live in Portarlington, Co. Laois where they produce
O'Mimo's Chilli Madness products. O’Mimo’s was started in March 2020, with the
development of the recipes, taste surveys and limited market research.
O’Mimo’s is a member of Laois Taste, a group of 25 small food producers in County Laois.
O’Mimo’s would like to thank the Laois Taste group, Local Enterprise Office and Laois
County Council who have been very supportive in helping getting our product to market.
In 2022 O’Mimo’s was successful in their application to the Food Academy programme. The
programme has been an enormous benefit in introducing and reinforcing the business aspects
of financial control, marketing/branding and Food Safety. O’Mimo’s would like to thank
Supervalu, Bord Bia and all members of the Food Academy team who have been an inspiring
resource throughout the programme.
