Sam Dennigan & Company UC was founded in 1976 by Samuel Laurence Dennigan who began trading potatoes in Oldtown, North Dublin.

The company sources, assembles and distributes a full range of fresh produce to the wholesale, retail and foodservice sectors on the island of Ireland. It is firmly embedded within the local community, giving many farm families in the area an outlet for their produce and a source of income.

Solid business relationships have been forged with local suppliers through decades of mutual experience on volatile fresh produce markets and those same farm families who began trading with the company in 1976 are still doing so today.

This Irish family business is run by two brothers and directors, Joe and Sam Dennigan, and is now one of the country's leading fresh produce companies, employing over 600 people.
