About our Company

van4Our production facility produces the Templetuohy Farm Fresh range of meats and ready to cook products, about 50 lines in total. In 2010 we saw the need to supply a superior range of quality products to meet consumer demand, thus we applied for and were successful in attaining and being awarded the very exclusive Bord Bia Quality assurance mark for Beef, Chicken, Lamb and Pork. This standard and award is awarded under the Bord Bia processor standard and EU regulation 582/583/254.

We are regulated by a Veterinary Inspector appointed by the Food Safety Authority of Ireland. These inspections are regular and unannounced. We are presently the only processor attaining the standard for all four species.

Under this scheme we can only source products from Bord Bia Quality Assured Irish Farms. Regular inspections and audits are carried out by Bord Bia to ensure the high standards we have achieved are maintained.
