About the company

Boyne Valley Group was established in 1960 when Malachy McCloskey, the company founder, launched the Boyne Valley Honey brand in Drogheda, where it is still based today. Boyne Valley Honey went on to become a clear market leader and is one of Ireland’s most iconic brands.

We’ve been building great brands ever since, and our portfolio now comprises market leaders including McDonnells, Chivers, Don Carlos, Homecook, Lakeshore and Lifeforce. Within Ireland we have three manufacturing facilities – two of which produce food, and one producing non-food cleaning products.

Our Origin Green sustainability charter will include targets and initiatives relating only to our food manufacturing facilities.
