Ir­ish Fish Canners earns its global rep­u­ta­tion for qual­ity and taste

Irish Examiner - Supplement - - FOOD & DRINK IRELAND -

Proiseail (An Clochan Liath) Te­o­ranta — trad­ing as Ir­ish Fish Canners — first opened its doors as a fish can­ning fac­tory in Septem­ber 1977.

A lo­cal am­bi­tious en­tre­pre­neur, Michael J Bon­ner, pur­chased the com­pany in 1988 while it was still op­er­at­ing on a three-day work­ing week.

Michael’s vi­sion for the busi­ness was to pro­vide sus­tain­able jobs within the lo­cal com­mu­nity by util­is­ing what na­ture pro­vided, pre­mium qual­ity canned fish from the sus­tain­able cold clear wa­ters of the North At­lantic Ocean.

Michael’s es­tab­lished back­ground in sales of pelagic fish helped him se­cure UN Food- Aid con­tracts, sup­ply­ing pre­mium qual­ity, lo­cally-caught her­ring and mack­erel — canned fish — to in­ter­na­tional mar­kets. Fol­low­ing Michael’s pass­ing in 1993 the com­pany re­mains within the Bon­ner fam­ily.

Ir­ish Fish Canners is a

100% fam­ily- owned and run busi­ness with all fam­ily mem­bers work­ing within the com­pany.

To­day, Ir­ish Fish Canners rep­re­sents the very best of fish can­ning.

The com­pany is the largest and only fish can­ning fa­cil­ity in Ire­land, lo­cated along the ‘Wild At­lantic Way’, it is in close prox­im­ity to Ire­land’s pre­mier deep-sea fish­ing port, Killy­begs.

“Our unique lo­ca­tion en­sures us ac­cess to the world’s finest fish, and as a re­sult of added value the busi­ness has now evolved into a ma­jor canned seafood provider to a num­ber of world class lead­ing brands in global mar­kets.

“Recog­nised and sup­ported by our loyal cus­tomer base span­ning in ex­cess of 35 years and our ded­i­cated work­force, many who have been with the com­pany since it’s in­cep­tion, we con­tinue to sup­ply mar­kets with our pre­mium qual­ity canned fish prod­ucts both do­mes­ti­cally and in­ter­na­tion­ally.”
