Our History | ABP UK

Delivering quality, value and integrity since 1981.

Our History

Over the last 35 years our business has grown to become one of the world’s leading food production companies. It’s our commitment to quality and our determination to surpass expectation that’s earned us our market-leading position.

ABP Food Group was founded in Ireland in 1954 and made its first venture into the UK food industry in 1981. Since then, we’ve gone from strength to strength, working with some of the biggest names in retail and food service, and some of the most forward-thinking experts from across the agricultural industry.

It’s always our goal to be the best at what we do. As pioneering food manufacturers, we always aim to embrace the very latest ideas in innovation, animal welfare and sustainability – so that for now, and well into the future, we can continue to adapt to the shape of the market and lead the UK food industry on key issues.

We are the UK division of ABP Food Group, an organisation deeply rooted in the history of the UK and Irish meat industry.
