Sustainability is at the core of everything we do, food builds communities and brings us joy. We began with humble but ambitious beginnings as Le Gourmet Delicatessen on Patrick Street in Dun Laoghaire in 1963, selling nuts, spices, herbs adn grainsa s well as running a successful catering business. Now we thrive off supporting sustainable brands and suppliers who share our ethos and always take steps to care for our planet and our communities.
