Our Story

Divilly Meats

Almost a century in the business.

Three generations…

From modest beginnings when the first Divilly’s store was opened in 1927, a loyal following was developed & from there, the business began to grow.  The brand was associated with superior customers service and high quality.

By the end of the seventies, demand for Divilly’s products, especially sausages had become so extensive that a decision was taken to form a limited company & set up a manufacturing unit. Divilly’s Limited commenced production on the outskirts of Galway city in 1980.

With the emphasis switching from retailing to manufacturing, the company soon outgrew these facilities & today’s Divilly’s manufacturing, headed by Brian Divilly, takes place in a purpose-built, Department of Agriculture approved plant at Carnmore in Galway.

The facility is situated on a two acre site with a facility covering approximately twenty thousand square feet with segregation of high & low risk areas. In the low risk area we produce our breakfast range of sausages, puddings, rashers & bacon joints.

We also process & cook bulk hams, turkey & hams in log format for our slicing operation. The high risk portion of the facility is used for bulk ham cleaning, crumbing & packaging with over a million euro invested in this area in 2011 for a state of the slicing & packaging line for cooked meats.

Divilly’s recently commenced production of own-brand products. The first products to market are the Specially Selected & Lifestyle Hams for Aldi. The addition of the Aldi business & growth of our own product range have allowed us to grow our staff numbers to thirty full-time staff at present.
