Pip and Pear is proudly made in Ireland and was set up by mother and restaurateur, Irene Queally.

Being a busy parent of two, Irene felt there was a need for a baby food range that was just like home cooking; nutritious, tasty and filled with vibrant flavours and textures.

Irene trialled her range in her restaurant ‘No.9 Barronstrand St’, Waterford and the feedback from parents and babies was extremely positive.

The range then won gold, silver and bronze at the 2014 Blas na hÉireann Awards and is now available in supermarkets all over Ireland.

Unique Selling Points

Pip and Pear is a chilled baby food range, making it very different to the long shelf life jars and pouches available.

Merchandised in the dairy fridge of supermarkets countrywide, it has a shelf life of 28 days. Each pot of Pip and Pear contains up to two of baby’s five-a-day portions and contains no added salt, sugar or additives.

Proudly made in Ireland, the wholesome range is gently cooked using Irish Bord Bia Quality Assured beef, chicken and lamb and organic fruit and vegetables.

Awards & Accreditations

Pip and Pear has won gold, silver and bronze at the 2014, 2015 and gold at the 2016 Blas na hÉireann National Irish Food Awards. Pip and Pear won the Maternity & Infant ‘Best Baby Food’ Award in 2015 and 2016 and is a regional winner of the 2017 National Enterprise Awards.

The company is BRC certified.
