which initially began as a cottage business, broke into the retail market to become a leading manufacturer in the
Irish bakery sector and one of the country's main exporters of cakes and muffins. Coolmore grew steadily over
the following years by successfully maintaining its home-baked quality and focusing on efficient processes and
customer satisfaction. Coolmore stays abreast of consumer trends across retail and foodservice channels, with a
heavy commitment to new product development. Coolmore exports to Europe, the US and the United Arab Emirates.
The company also manufactures an array of private-label products for leading retailers across Europe. Coolmore is
accredited to British Retail Consortium (BRC) Grade A, International Featured Standards higher level and is a Roundtable on
Sustainable Palm Oil-certified manufacturer. The business operates from a 1.2-acre facility. The site is GMO-free and all products
are free from hydrogenated fats, sodium aluminium phosphate (SALP), artificial colours and flavours. Coolmore Foods is also a
verified member of Bord Bia's Origin Green programme.

Its core range comprises gluten-free breads (loaves, bagels, two-pack slices), muffins
and baked goods (cakes, scones, tartlets), viennoiserie and seasonal lines. Products
are certified to < 5ppm gluten. Some products currently fall into other `free-from'
categories, eg. dairy, egg and nut. All bread products are also wheat, egg and dairy-free,
making them suitable for vegans. The company has won 23 food awards in Ireland and
the UK since production began. Market research is considered a vital part of the continued
development of the company's product range. In November 2017, Goodness Grains moved
into a new, purpose-built, 20,000ft
system. Goodness Grains is committed to sustainable production, which it says is underpinned by its
verified membership of Bord Bia's Origin Green sustainability programme.
