Steadfast commitment to Quality
Quality is the bedrock of our business at Slaney Farms. Consumers today are concerned about food safety and traceability within the food chain with quality of critical concern in food production. Consumers and retailers alike expect produce to be grown, handled, packaged and transported to the highest standards, in a clean and sustainable manner.
As one of Ireland’s leading growers and suppliers of fresh potato produce, we nurture all our potato varieties in soil spanning several locations around Enniscorthy/Clonroche – which boost some of the best soils in Ireland. To maintain our strict quality standards the deep free-draining loamy soils are tested and where necessary nutrients are added to ensure optimal flavour and quality excellence. Using only interventions approved by the Irish Department of Agriculture, and minimal rates where possible, we strive towards eco-friendly production.
Working with nature, in the heart of potato country, we follow the growing cycle; sowing, growing and harvesting at optimal times to achieve the finest produce. Packing in our strategically located facility in Enniscorthy our main crop potatoes, once harvested, are dried using special drying technology. Then stored in quality controlled refrigerated purpose-built stores with the temperature maintained at an even 3°, the potatoes happily sit in their dark cool home until they are required for packing and dispatch countrywide. We currently have capacity for over 5000 tonnes, ensuring consistency in quality and supply all year round.
Health & Safety
Health & Safety are of paramount importance at Slaney Farms too. With our facility audited yearly, we are proud of the fact we are consistently compliant.
