Musgrave Extends Partnership With Ballymaguire Foods For Five Years

Ireland's Musgrave Group has extended its partnership with Ballymaguire Foods, a Lusk-based ready meal provider, with a new five-year deal worth €170-million.

The retail group seeks to meet the demand for healthy, pre-prepared meal options through this partnership.

The deal will see Ballymaguire Foods supply Irish-made prepared meals and side dishes to SuperValu, Centra and Daybreak outlets.

Ian Allen, managing director of SuperValu and Centra commented, "In recent times, we have seen an increase in demand for healthy meals and we are very happy to continue to work with Ballymaguire Foods who continue to innovate and evolve to meet shoppers needs.

"A long-standing partner of ours, their passion about sustainability and reducing their impact on the environment, is important to us. We are delighted to continue a partnership that has run for 13 years and look forward to the next five years."
