About the company

Proiseail (An Clochan Liath) Teoranta, trading as Irish Fish Canners, is a family owned and run business since 1977, and is the largest and only fish canning facility in Ireland. With over 35 years' experience and a dedicated workforce, the company are recognised as the very best of Irish Fish canning. Located in Dungloe, Co. Donegal, beside Ireland's largest deep sea fishing port of Killybegs, guarantees fresh fish supply throughout the fishing season. Premium quality is the hallmark of Irish Fish Canners' success. Its purchasing procedures combined with its location enables the company to physically inspect all the fish before purchasing. This ensures the grading, size, fat content and overall quality of its fish exceed its stringent quality and traceability procedures. All Irish Fish Canners products are 100% natural with no additives or preservatives.

Spotlight Target Area: Water
Irish Fish Canners mission is to ensure the sustainability of its quality products –
protecting the environment and natural resources while providing a professional
sea to shelf service to its customers. Within its current sustainability plan, Irish Fish
Canners set a target in 2018 to reduce its water consumption by 35% by the end of
2022. The company surpassed this target in 2020 by reaching a reduction of 43.3%.
This decrease in consumption is due to a change in its hygiene practices which
increased the number of deep cleans per week to replace smaller regular cleans which
consume more water. In addition, Irish Fish Canners repaired some cracks in the
Kipper line which had caused water loss and have installed a new washer system to
eliminate leaks.
