Glynns Fruit and Vegetables has been at the forefront of the fruit and vegetable industry in the West of Ireland for 75 years. Click here to see an article from the Connaught Tribune on 31st August 1935 about George Glynn Sr who was responsible for starting the Glynn's business. Our business has grown on the strength of the quality of our products. Our produce has gained us regional acclaim and we are especially renowned for the quality of our peeled potatoes.
Glynns strives relentlessly to provide the highest quality products to customers at competitive prices. Over the course of 75 years, Glynns has proven that this family business is able to continually adapt in an ever changing and competitive marketplace.
Glynns has built strong relationships with professional fresh produce suppliers at home and around the world. We work with our suppliers to constantly develop their fresh produce to the highest level of best value, best quality, best appearance, best taste and best flavour. We actively try to support local growers for produce in season and, for some of the more exotic produce, we rely on our long established international suppliers.
Throughout 75 years, Glynns has established strong partnerships with leading fruit producers and distributors worldwide. For example, in the case of apples and pears, European countries such as France, Italy, Spain and Portugal would be the main suppliers from July to February. From February to June, the Company can source directly from southern hemisphere countries such as Chile and New Zealand. All culinary apples, and some dessert apples varieties are sourced in Ireland. Each consignment is checked prior to dispatch and is transported under state of the art chilled temperature conditions.
In recent years, the Company has built a solid reputation for supplying quality fresh berries. These products arrive fresh on a daily basis and are maintained in mint condition because of the Company's chilled supply chain climate right through to the customer. A taste of summer all year round.
The quality and freshness of Glynn's produce is a manifestation of the time invested by the Company in seeking out and creating strong links with top-quality producers, and working together as partners to deliver the highest quality. We also recognise that many of our customers want to buy food grown or produced locally, which reflects local tastes and traditions. Whilst we carry the complete range of fruit, vegetables and prepared vegetables, we are unique in our ablilty to provide specific recipes for individual hotels and restaurants.
Food hygiene and Health and Safety are of primary importance to Glynns and we carry out all operations strictly adhering to HACCP guidelines. Our capacity to add value for our customers is dependant on our ability to provide a quality range of fresh foods as required, delivered on a reliable, daily basis, together with a dependable while practicable emergency back-up service.
