The Just Food Company

The Just Food Company was established in 2004 by Deirdre Hilliard who operated a stall at the Midleton Farmers Market. Now, from a commercial kitchen in Cobh, County Cork, she prepares organic handmade food, and supply products to our stores. A diverse range of fresh organic foods are produced, by an experienced team, using organic ingredients – as local as possible.

Deirdre believes that food cooked in small batches tastes better and is better. Smaller batches also cook quicker and closer to the time of consumption which as taste, nutritional and food safety benefits, and allows us to respond to natural differences in ingredients. Her Winter Minestorne Soup is her take on the traditional Italian Minsetrone, only even healthier – she has replaced the usual pasta with protein rich and filling cannellini beans, with tomatoes, celery, leeks, and fresh basil pesto added at the end of cooking for extra depth, this soup really is summer in a bowl for those cooler winter days.
