An Entrepreneurial Spirit
At Boyne Valley Group we are driven by innovation and inspired by change. From the very beginning we’ve been identifying opportunities, exploring trends, developing new products and building world class brands.
More than 60 years later, that entrepreneurial spirit remains, and our company has grown from strength to strength. Today our business is still proudly located in the heart of the Boyne Valley itself, and our portfolio has expanded to include over 20 international and market leading brands.
Where It All Began
It all started when seventeen year old Malachy McCloskey, working at his family greengrocers, saw an opportunity. An entrepreneur at heart, he created his own business, branded Boyne Valley Honey. It grew rapidly in the 1960s, and by the end of the decade, a dedicated production facility was opened just outside Drogheda, Co. Louth.
We are a proud, branded, innovative, consumer-centric, trusted international FMCG business, loved for providing relevant and differentiated solutions for changing lifestyles ─ available anytime, anywhere. As a business we have chosen six core values that guide us and are fundamental to everything we do.
Achieve | Innovate | Inspire | Respect | Trust | Wellbeing
Building Iconic Brands
We continue to build iconic food and household brands ─ both at home and abroad ─ across a wide range of categories including; honey, preserves, oils, curry, jelly, home-baking, health and performance nutrition, snacking, convenience, cleaning, refuse and many more.
Our extensive portfolio of leading brands continues to evolve and expand to meet the needs of consumers and, as a Group, we are incredibly passionate about what we do; working together in an environment that challenges and excites us to drive growth across our business.
Over the years, we’ve seen some extraordinary changes. As a business, we’ve embraced the opportunities and the challenges that each change has brought and together, we’ve built a reputation that we’re proud of. As a family business, that means a huge amount. Today, we are as ambitious as ever and we look forward to driving our business to reach new heights.Edward McCloskey Chairman
