Dunnes Stores has been part of the fabric of Irish life for over 70 years. A family run, privately owned Irish company with almost 15,000 employees and over 150 stores throughout Ireland, the U.K. and Spain.

Groceries and food were first introduced to Dunnes Stores in the 1960’s. Our long established Better Value promise has helped make the company one of Ireland's largest and leading retailers. Over time our food selection has grown and the spirit of better value and excellent quality has remained strong.

Working with Small Producers

The development of our National & International Award Winning Simply Better food collection has taken us on a tour around Ireland and further afield to meet and work with passionate food producers, quite often several generations of the one family. Supporting these small producers is very much part of the ethos of the Simply Better brand.
 
The Simply Better range consists of over 300 unique products that have been developed with a focus on the process and provenance of the product. Examples include our range of Fruit Preserves, handmade using traditional open pot boiling by Tom & Laura Sinnott of Wexford Preserves and our Oak Smoked Organic Irish Salmon with Honey & Dill which is slowly smoked by Birgitta Curtin and the expert team from Burren Smokehouse in Co. Clare. 

Dunnes to Judge all Shortlisted Small Producer Products

Following the Irish Quality Food Awards judging, the Simply Better Team and a guest celebrity chef will judge the shortlisted small producer products and choose a winner based on the best in quality, ingredients, taste, aroma, innovation, packaging and price.
 
The overall winner will receive an opportunity to work directly with the Simply Better Development & Buying team and they will also receive marketing support to help launch their brand with Dunnes Stores.
 
We are delighted to sponsor the small producer of the year award at this year’s Irish Quality Food & Drink Awards 2017.
