Founded in 1979 by Seamus Carroll, Carroll Cuisine started as a cooked ham manufacturer and distributer. The business was acquired by IAWS in 2004.
Three years later in 2007, Carrolls was awarded its Bord Bia certification. Come 2009, the company expanded into the manufacturing of pre-packed sliced meats.
By 2015, a management-led buyout instigated significant growth, and Carrolls began manufacturing poultry and beef. Later that year, it was awarded the fastest-growing brand in Ireland and also maintained its spot as the number one selling ham brand.
