The BWG Group has successfully completed the acquisition of Heaney Meats Catering Co Ltd., a major supplier of premium quality meat products to Ireland’s foodservice sector. The completion of the deal follows clearance by the Competition and Consumer Protection Commission in January.

Heaney Meats specialises in the preparation and distribution of premium quality beef, lamb, poultry, pork and bacon to the foodservice sector. The company, which was founded by Shayne and Kenneth Heaney in 1996, has annual sales of approximately €24 million and employs 75 people at its facility in Galway. The business has been the recipient of multiple industry awards and has developed well-invested supply chain operations that include a fleet of 25 refrigerated vehicles. Generations of the Heaney family have been master butchers stretching back over 300 years.

Commenting on the completion of the transaction, Leo Crawford, group CEO, BWG Group, said having Heaney Meats as part of the group will expand and enhance BWG’s meat offering and strengthen its market-leading position. “Heaney Meats is very well regarded,” Crawford said, “and it delivers a great service to its customers across Ireland. We now look forward to working with them to further grow our combined business.”
