Donworth Investments

About Donworth

In 2013, Donworth invested close to €3m, acquiring and recapitalising Galmere and Taravale as part of a strategy to invest in indigenous food producers.

The Donworth team has a 30 year successful track record in the food industry, with a detailed understanding of procurement, production, supply chains and retailers’ requirements.

Since then we have continued to invest in people, processes and systems to optimise the quality of our product, the resilience of the business and returns for investors.

Investment and Development

With the support of Enterprise Ireland and the European Regional Development Fund, Galmere has had a continuous investment programme, exceeding €2m in production facilities. This has enhanced efficiency, increased capacity and secured high quality employment in the West of Ireland.

Enterprise Ireland ERDF Partnership

Project Description
Galmere has seen many changes since its acquisition. The first phase of redeveloping the business focused on securing industry accreditation, product development and building a secure customer base. Capital initiatives in Galmere Foods are co-funded by the European Regional Development Fund and Enterprise Ireland under the Border, Midland and Western Regional Operational Programme 2014-2020.

The Galmere facility is well invested but required incremental capacity to extend the production of a very high quality range of fresh foods. Our Investing in Growth Project increases the efficiency of the operation and provides a platform to grow the business by up to 50%. Innovation and quality – particularly in fresh ingredients – has driven growth over the past two years.

Over the next three years we aim to consolidate our position in the retail sector, extend our food service and export business and continue to develop our own branded products in the sauces and salads sectors.

Project Results

Our partnership has facilitated further modernisation of our production facilities, generating a significant improvement in productivity which creates the capacity for our planned future growth.
