Euro Farm Foods was established in 2001 by Michael and Agnes Fox.
It initially operated as a small local abattoir outside Duleek in County Meath supplying carcase beef and lamb to the local butcher trade and into the Dublin market.
The period 2002-2003 saw substantial investment by the owners, the result of which was the construction of a modern slaughter and production facility. The plant was granted a licence to export its products by the Department of Agriculture in early 2004. This began a period of expansion in throughput and personnel and the business grew rapidly over the next couple of years.
Since 2005 Euro Farm Foods has concentrated on the slaughter of cattle and the dispatch of carcase beef and offal products to our customers at home and abroad.
2012 / 2013 has seen a major investment in the expansion of the business, with the construction of a new deboning hall, amenity block, additional chilling capacity and office space.
This investment included an upgrade of our existing refrigeration equipment to an ammonia gas based system. This was a conscious decision based on the positive environmental impact the changes will have. The ammonia gas based system is certified to have zero gas emissions with reduced running costs and will prove to be a significant step in reducing Euro Farm Foods carbon footprint.
Over the years, Euro Farm Foods has achieved various accreditations which acknowledge the continued emphasis placed on quality in all aspects of our business. This is reflected in the retention of our "AA" rating achieved as a result of our annual BRC audit, conducted in January 2019.
As an independently owned business, Euro Farm Foods has proven to be dynamic in response to the needs of our customers.
Our EU factory approval number is EC297
