At Kepak, trusted quality & service are our pillars. Sustainability keeps us grounded in the presence our communities.
Responsible, respectable, reputable
Kepak is one of Ireland’s leading meat producers with 15 manufacturing plants in Ireland and the UK. Meat craft, trusted quality and excellent service are the pillars of our proud heritage. Sustainability and animal welfare keep us grounded in the presence of nature and our communities. Innovation and inspirational nutrition drive our business to develop and grow.
For over 50 years, our farmers have trusted Kepak to process and market their livestock in a respectful way. Every day we renew our commitment to making a positive difference in every sector of our business, be it by leading the way as founding members of Origin Green or sharing experiences on Kepak Farm on topics ranging from animal nutrition, animal welfare and energy conservation to waste reduction.
Our People, Our Pride
Our founding father, Noel Keating, was a second-generation master butcher and his entrepreneurial spirit lives on in Kepak. To this day, we remain family-owned and run, which creates an open, positive and genuinely welcoming working environment.
New graduates receive access to senior management and are supported in their ambitions through personal mentors.
Many of our group’s senior management team have trained and worked across all sectors of the Kepak business, from sales and operations to procurement and new product development.
In a challenging and dynamic environment, our philosophy is always to be ‘more than’. We are more than tradition, more than quality, more than meat and more than a job.
Every day we are innovating with delicious, new food products and becoming leaner and more efficient to deliver the highest quality fresh meat and branded products for our clients around the world.
