Galmere, producing fine Irish food since 1989
Based out of Galway, Ireland, Galmere is an innovative food producer specialising in soups, sauces, meal bowls, salads and dips.
Founded originally in the kitchen of a well-known Galway restaurant, Galmere today can be found in a 33,000 sq ft certified organic, BRC A accredited, facility in Galway, Ireland.
With a central focus on sustainable and local produce where possible, we create contemporary and traditional foods based on our ongoing research into consumer and global food trends.
Our progressive approach to product development has led to the acquisition of an impressive selection of awards, validating our ethos to ensure quality and taste remain our central principle.
With quality and taste central to Galmere, we have produced a high-quality selection of traditional and contemporary foods.
Galmere’s history of award making salads begins with its very formation, producing coleslaw from the original restaurant kitchens. Today we offer a wide range of traditional and contemporary salads.
Soups & Meal Bowls
We produce over 13 million pots of branded and private label soups a year, including products for Cully & Sully, our own Roots and Shoots and many more, as well as many retailers’ own label soups.

Galmere is a leader in food production technology. We are BRC A accredited, 2018, 2019 and 2020 and approved by all key retailers. We have a dedicated, four-strong qualified technical team, who keep up to date with best practice, through sustained vocational training. Galmere maintains a continuous production facilities investment programme.
Heat and Eat Process
The heat and eat technology we use is an integrated cooking, packaging and cooling system for soups and meals; which means that raw ingredients are prepared, cooked, and packed within 4 hours, using the best available technology.
high pressure processing
Fresh sauces carry a minor pathogen risk; HPP fully addresses this risk, providing a four log reduction in pathogens. HPP preserves nutrients while killing pathogens, making our Irish chilled sauces and hummus probably the safest on sale.
We have invested in leading preparation and production equipment; partnering with recognised industry leaders. This optimises and preserves the taste and goodness of our products.
