Origin Green Sustainability Programme

  • • Folláin is the Irish for wholesome and wholesomeness permeates all levels of Folláin’s business life. Sustainability is an integral part of this wholesome approach to business.
  • • Sustainability has been at the forefront of the company’s latest development, a new 34,000 sq. ft ‘fit for purpose’ and fit for future, energy efficient production facility to meet the changing market requirements and further the development of new innovative healthy product lines.
  • • Folláin’s commitment to wholesome food led to the introduction of a No Added Sugar range in 2007.
  • • As part of the company’s health and nutrition target, it set out to launch at least two new products with no added sugar each year.
  • • In 2020, Folláin launched four new no added sugar products, surpassing its initial target and continuing to demonstrate and embrace the innovation upon which the company was founded.
Folláin was established by Mairin and Peadar Ui Lionaird and business partner Eithne Ui Shiadhai in 1983, using a family recipe passed down through generations for grapefruit marmalade. From modest beginnings, the company continuously grew over the years with a rising demand for Folláin jams, marmalades, relish and chutneys.

Folláin is the Irish word for "wholesome" which is at the core of its commitment to honest food. The company believes that preserves have the power to capture the fruits of nature at its very best, and it aims to share the fruits of its labour.

Folláin's commitment to natural food has led to the introduction of its No Added Sugar range, which has won many awards both nationally and internationally.

A recent expansion into a new manufacturing facility has led to increased production capacity, providing customers with new and exciting product offerings.
