About the company

Annalitten Foods Ltd. is a privately owned family business and one of Ireland's largest egg packing and distribution companies. The company was established in rural Monaghan in the 1950's by Patrick & Margaret O'Reilly who began a small egg collection & delivery business to support their young family. Today, the business is run by Michael & P.J O'Reilly and their sons, Damien, Keith & Matthew, the third generation of the family. Twenty individual farmers from all over Ireland supply Annalitten Foods every week with Bord Bia Quality Assured eggs. The company has never been afraid to invest in the latest production systems and egg grading equipment to ensure that its eggs reach customers with maximum freshness and quality. Two million eggs are processed per week to a 'Class A' quality on the most modern egg grading equipment on the market.

Spotlight Target Area: Energy
Annalitten Foods takes pride in what it does; innovating, executing flawlessly, and
creating and adding value where possible. Within the area of energy usage, the
company is committed to further reduction programmes. Energy is a major annual
cost and reducing energy consumption will benefit the wider community and reduce
pressure on the national grid. Annalitten Foods set a target of a 10% reduction on
electricity usage levels (kWh) per tonne of eggs packed from a baseline year of 2018
in its current sustainability plan (2019-2023). Despite unforeseen changes driven by
Covid-19 measures and enhanced cleaning requirements, as well as extended work
hours, the company is currently 29% ahead of target over its 2018 baseline. Due to
the strong performance to date, the company has updated its projected milestones
for the remainder of the plan period with an aim of a further 3% annual reduction of
energy usage until 2023.
