Company History

Boyne Valley Group was established in 1960 when Malachy McCloskey, the company founder, launched the Boyne Valley Honey brand in Drogheda, where it is still based today. Boyne Valley Honey went on to become a clear market leader and is one of Ireland’s most iconic brands.

We’ve been building great brands ever since, and our portfolio now comprises market leaders including McDonnells, Chivers, Erin soup, Don Carlos, Homecook, Lakeshore and Lifeforce. Our non-food portfolio includes Killeen, Ireland’s favourite household brand, and the only manufacturer of steel wool and soap pads in the country.

We have a strong route-to-market in Grocery, Wholesale and Foodservice for ambient food, chilled food and household products. We have one of the largest field sales teams in Ireland, and pride ourselves on excellent customer service.

Facilities Overview

Located in close proximity to Dublin, our modern offices and warehouse are located approximately a 30 minute drive from the International Financial Services Centre in the heart of Dublin, just off the M1 motorway. We manufacture on three sites in Drogheda, and our facilities include an innovation centre, incorporating a development kitchen and sensory analysis suite. Our warehouse spans 269,000 square feet including 25 loading bays and uses state of the art voice technology, resulting in a paperless warehouse environment.
