Castlecor’s golden wonder grew from the ground up
CASTLECOR Potatoes was established in 1974. Back then we were as passionate about growing our quality products together with our business as we are today.
Our expertise in growing potatoes is unmatched and it is why our retail, wholesale and foodservice customers have confidence in us to consistently deliver their requirements. e
We grow all of our potatoes in the rich and fertile lands of Munster and we wash and pack our products at our modern packing facility at Castlecor, Mallow.
We take our responsibility to the land and the environment very seriously, re-cycling and re-using where we can and setting high targets for energy conservation.
We love what we do and our passion is in growing the finest quality potatoes for our customers.
In the early days potatoes were bulked in giant heaps and packed into 4 stone bags using pikes. Most if not all potatoes were packed without washing and sold loose by weight in shops.
Today, potato packing is very different. Harvested potatoes are stored in dark refrigerated warehouses. When required for packing batches
