how it all began

One man’s vision is now a thriving team with specialist expertise across sourcing, distribution, farming and value adding innovation.

Our business began in Dublin’s Smithfield Market, where the Donnelly name became known for quality and the personal touch. Many decades have passed but our commitment to bringing consumers across Ireland the freshest high-quality produce remains just as strong.
