Championing local produce
At Musgrave we are passionate about supporting local producers and we are committed to promoting quality Irish food and drink which shoppers trust and enjoy
Irish produce is widely recognised to be high quality, delicious and trusted. At Musgrave we are committed to supporting the thousands of passionate and skilled Irish producers who create this fantastic food and drink that we know consumers enjoy. From large producers to small, from farmers to artisans, from bakers to brewers, they all make up the exciting food scene in Ireland.
Through our market leading brands, we support ‘Local and Irish’ by stocking local produce wherever possible, supporting small producers through our Food Academy programme, and promoting local food and drink through marketing campaigns.

We work in conjunction with our Irish suppliers to ensure that the products that make it on to the shelves of our brands are of the very best quality, and in the case of meat are also high welfare. For example, SuperValu has worked with Irish supplier Kepak, to create lamb producer guidelines, ensuring the best possible welfare and environmental standards.Read More
