Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Charlie McConalogue visits Flahavan’s

Posted on: 27 Jul 2021

Arriving at the Flahavan’s Mill, Kilmacthomas, Co. Waterford this Thursday, Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Charlie McConalogue TD met John Flahavan as the company welcomed the first delivery of the 2021 harvest – organic oats from Co. Roscommon.

Flahavan’s forecasts that it will produce 8,500t of organic oat-based products in the coming 12 months, the vast majority of which (>70%) will be sourced from organic farms across Ireland. More than two thirds of the organic products produced by the seventh-generation family food business will be exported to international markets including the UK. 

Flahavan’s is actively involved in promoting organic tillage farming, alongside Teagasc, the Organic Trust and the Irish Organic Association (IOA), in order to help increase the supply of organic oats within the Irish market.
