Folláin is the Irish word for wholesome, which is at the core of Folláin’s commitment to honest food made with the purest ingredients to hand. Folláin really believe that preserves have the power to capture nature at its very best and that’s what we want to share with the world. Back in 1984, Mairin and Peadar O’Lionaird branched out from their kitchen in Cuil Aodha, West Cork, in the Muscraí Gaeltacht, making use of the delicious gooseberries, strawberries and raspberries that were available locally. Today, Folláin produces a large variety of fruit preserves, chutneys, relishes, sauces and condiments in both retail and foodservice formats. Mairin and Peadar’s love of good food and eating well makes home-cooking essential in their approach in producing the best products available in Ireland today, and that home cooking comfort and care is at the essence of everything that Folláin makes. Building on the company’s modest beginning, preparing the fruit and cooking in kitchen-style conditions, Folláin has grown steadily, increasing its range and expanding to what is now a modern food factory, built and fully equipped to the highest of standards. Traditional home-cooked methods are still at the heart of the unique Folláin taste. Folláin’s commitment to wholesome food led to the introduction of a retail range of “No Added Sugar” preserves in 2007; just as sweet as the traditional recipe taste that Folláin lovers are used to, these do not contain any refined sugars, just the natural fruit sugars that nature provides. These products are now available in a foodservice format. Folláin has always traded on the quality of its products, and by working in close partnership with Pallas Foods its range and portfolio of products have grown from strength to strength, by offering culinary solutions to catering and foodservice customers nationwide. The Folláin foodservice range of products hold true to the core values of Folláin, which is wholesome products free from artificial ingredients. The range includes Traditional Recipe Irish jams and marmalades, No Added Sugar jams and marmalades and a highly regarded range of chutneys, relishes and sauces
