The Independent Irish Food Businesses You Should Support Today

We're doing what we can to help Irish businesses.

Even though we're all still practising social distancing and most of us are working from home, we still want to help support Irish food and drink producers. 

We've decided to help our readers #ShopForIreland so we'll be posting every day to highlight producers around Ireland. 

Get in touch on our social channels with your suggestions on who we should write about.

Boyne Valley producers box

Food and drink producers in the Boyne Valley area have teamed up to offer a range of food boxes that you can get delivered directly to your door. There are three options available to choose from - store cupboard essentials, a weekly veg box or a meat, fish and dairy box, plus you have the option to add on some Listoke Distillery hand sanitiser.

The boxes start from €29.50 and include products like Drummond House garlic and asparagus, Oriel sea sal, free-range eggs from Rockfarm in Slane and much more. Click here for more info or to place your order.

Cashel Food Boxes

Similar to the above initiative, the good people behind Cashel Blue have teamed up with local Tipperary producers to create two food boxes that are available for delivery all over the island of Ireland. The regular box costs €58 and the large box is €80, both of which come with free delivery.

Exact contents may vary, but you can expect to see great produce like Annie's Organic Farm vegetables, Inch House black pudding, Crossogue Preserves and, of course, Cashel Blue Cheese.

Calendar Coffee

Calendar Coffee, which is based in Barna, County Galway, has launched an amazing initiative that aims to help support coffee shops and cafés all over Ireland. For every bag of Calendar Coffee purchased through their online store, the company will donate 30 per cent of the price to your chosen café, regardless of whether they stock Calendar or not.

To make it work, there is a €4 flat-rate cost on all orders up to 2kg, which helps to cover shipping costs. When you place your order, simply enter the name and location of your favourite café at the checkout and Calendar will do the rest.

To order, head to calendarcoffee.ie, connect through Instagram @calendar.coffee or call Calendar on +353 (83) 426 2726.
