Temple dairy

Always a visionary for future growth in his dairy business in Co. Limerick, it wasn't till Sean Curtin linked up with daughter, Marie in 2014 that ideas began to spark on a new family business.

Marie Curtin, a former athlete with 45 international caps for the Republic of Ireland senior women’s team, was quick to point out a growing popularity in flavored milk around the world among top athletes, sports teams and exercise enthusiasts for its carbohydrate and protein content.

They decided against using artificial preservatives in their recipe, making the product healthy, natural and suitable for kids too!

Going on Supervalu's Food Academy has helped the pair launch their products. Marie explains, "Starting and running a new business can be a daunting task. The Food Academy has been a platform to help us grow!"

Sean adds, "Being able to add value to our own farm milk has been a long awaiting goal! It's very rewarding to produce an exciting range of products, an exciting brand, and, we're delighted to be able to employ local people!"

The duo hope to continue their success with the help of Supervalu Food Academy's support.
