We started Gem Pack Foods in 1967 as a small importer of specialist dried fruit, nuts and seeds. Over time, our products were used by Irish mums to provide wholesome home baked products for their families. Today, in homes, cafes, restaurants and more, our products are everywhere you eat. We are a wholly owned Irish company who are passionate about baking and cooking and constantly trying to develop new products and packaging to make life in the kitchen more enjoyable.
In 2012 Gem Pack Foods acquired the Sowan’s brand. At Sowan’s we are committed to producing wholesome, quality products. Our Sowan's range brings together the best ingredients to create our unique and, most importantly, tasty products. Sowan’s is a health focused brand with a rapidly growing portfolio. We have a comprehensive range of gluten free and regular baking mixes, a wholefoods and wholegrains range, and a nut butter range.
