Galmere is a Leader in
Food Technology

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.


cooking big

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.
