An Taoiseach Leo Varadkar, TD (pictured above left), has officially opened AllinAll Ingredient’s new state-of-the-art manufacturing and Research and Development facility in Rosemount, Dublin. The company, which has been in the food industry for over 20 years, develops and manufactures ingredients, sauces and blends for the processed food market. Its R&D lead team have developed over 500 new products so far this year and last year it developed over 900.

Previously based in Parkwest, Dublin, AllinAll Ingredient’s new facility at Rosemount includes a Pilot Plant which provides the infrastructure and scientific equipment which food scientists use to trial, develop and demonstrate new products. The new facility will support the company’s growth ambitions as it looks to further grow its sales in Eastern Europe and the Middle East as well as seek new export markets by linking up with new Distributors.

The growth trajectory which AllinAll Ingredients has been on has been substantial, doubling its employee numbers over the last four years to forty, and the expanded facilities will provide for an expanded workforce as the company plans to hire a further twenty people over the next four years.

An Taoiseach Leo Varadkar, TD, said: “It is very encouraging to see cutting edge food research and innovation being developed in Dublin West. AllinAll Ingredients has been at the forefront of innovation in the food sector and the investment in this new state of the art facility should help the company to expand into more new markets in the years ahead. The new facility, located beside Dublin Airport, will also welcome international food scientists seeking to make improvements, innovations and develop products of the future. The Government is prioritising Research and Development through Innovation 2020, our strategy for R&D, science and innovation and we recently launched a new €500m Disruptive Technologies to drive innovation and build new markets for Irish businesses. I wish all of the staff at AllinAll Ingredients the very best with this exciting new venture.”

Julie Sinnamon, CEO, Enterprise Ireland, said: “Research and development drives innovation which is a proven source of advantage and instrumental in helping companies compete internationally. Enterprise Ireland has worked closely with AllinAll Ingredients as the company has evolved over the years and we wish them every success with their ambitious plans for significant growth in export markets.”

Commenting on the significant investment, Daniel Hickey (pictured above right), Chief Executive Officer at AllinAll Ingredients, said: “AllinAll Ingredients has been at the cutting edge of the food ingredients industry for many years and we are proud to open our new manufacturing and R&D facility in Dublin, which will allow us grow and expand our business in Ireland and around the world.”

“As people’s tastes and food needs change, we need to change with them.  Our new R&D facility and Pilot Plant are an important part of the new operation as it allows us trial and demonstrate new ideas and solutions for customers. We will over the coming months not only be trialling and developing new products for our customers, but we will also welcome food scientists from at home and abroad who will be coming to jointly work with us and use our facilities.”

These newly designed laboratories provide the state-of-the-art space in which AllinAll’s R&D Food Scientists can engage in new product development for key clients in the processed meat, ready meal, snacks and bakery sectors. A key benefit is the ability to conduct scaled-up product trials in partnership with customers in the new pilot plant.

Daniel Hickey added: “This facility provides us with the capacity to create new products faster and with greater confidence launch them on the market. It’s also more cost-effective as the scale of the trial work is smaller than if the customer used their own full scale production plant. The blending capacity of the Rosemount plant is three-times the size of the old plant, with a larger range of blending equipment available too. This means we can be far more flexible and provide a greater speed of service than existed before.   At AllinAll, we see our role as helping our customers to stay current, in whatever way they deem right for them and their business while delivering a service that observes the highest quality standards which is guaranteed by the new plant being granted the BRC AA accreditation.”

“With our new plant located less than fifteen minutes from Dublin International Airport which has direct air links throughout Europe, the Middle East and North America we are uniquely well-located to be able to work closely with our customers at home and abroad and develop the partnership relationship that can deliver for both parties. We can easily and quickly bring in technologists from our international customers here to develop the solutions they need, undertaking full trial and verification work.  We can also get our Technologists go abroad to visit current and potential customers and in partnership develop products that deliver for our customers a bespoke solution that when used by them in their production process and gives them the end product they wish to sell on to their customer.”

AllinAll Ingredients has signed up to the Origin Green programme promoted by Bord Bia. The overall ambition of the Origin Green programme is that farms and food manufacturing businesses throughout Ireland sign up to the sustainability agenda, making measurable commitments to producing in a sustainable manner, with progress independently assessed and verified.   AllinAll has committed to deliver on sustainability targets covering a number of areas including raw materials sourcing, manufacturing processes and operations and social sustainability.
