A Taste Of Home
“We hope we can bring a taste of home to the thousands of Irish people living in Australia," said Gary Hanrahan, marketing manager of Ballymaloe Foods.
"This unprecedented time has led us to take a step back and appreciate the things around us, like family, friends, nature and good food. Now is the time to cherish those food moments," he added.
Ballymaloe Foods posted sales of €6 million last year and the company reported that relish sales were up 10% since in quarter one 2020, compared to the same period last year.
