Ballymaloe Foods was founded in 1990 by Yasmin Hyde. Her mother, Myrtle Allen was Ireland’s first female Michelin Star chef. She opened a gastro restaurant at Ballymaloe House in the 1960s and it was here that she developed the now iconic Original Relish recipe, using tomatoes grown on the grounds and a blend of spices and other natural ingredients.
Fast forward 30 years and Ballymaloe Foods is now the number 1 relish brand in Ireland. Our products are available in both retail and foodservice channels and we export to over 10 countries. We started our business with the Original Tomato Relish and have now grown to over 18 products, including pasta sauces, beetroot, traditional roasting and meat sauces, mayonnaise, and salad dressings.
