Northern Ireland Apples Part of New £88k Supply Deal

In a deal estimated to be worth approximately €100,000 (about £88k), the renowned food services provider Compass Ireland has contracted to purchase apples, pears and fruit juices from McCann Orchards.

For over half a century, McCann Orchards has been providing the highest quality fruits and vegetables to supermarkets, wholesalers and caterers. Both their orchards in Slane County Meath and Portadown County Armagh have been run by generations of the same family business. Their commitment to excellence is unparalleled!

For two years, Compass Group Ireland has proudly aligned with the esteemed producers of award-winning crops to form a mutually beneficial business relationship.

“We are delighted that our commitment to sustainable production methods has helped secure the new supply contract with Compass Ireland”, said Oliver McCann, managing director of McCann Orchards.

​“It’s a perfect partnership, with both businesses passionate about quality local food production.”

Last October, Tesco Ireland proudly declared a €2.5m deal with McCann Orchards to source their selection of apples and pears, which had previously been imported from abroad. This revolutionary agreement has allowed Tesco to expand their locally sourced produce in order to provide customers with the freshest experience possible!

Tesco Ireland is the primary customer for McCann Orchards’ Tullyallen ‘modern orchard’, which spans 130 acres and is located near the Louth-Meath border in the Boyne Valley. To date, the team at McCann Orchards has planted more than 100,000 trees on their site!

The development of cutting-edge growing systems has allowed for the cultivation of notably popular apples and pears, such as Gala and Golden Delicious apples, alongside Conference and QTee Pears.
