History of Food Ireland Wholesale

Food Ireland Wholesale has its origins in a retail bakery store that had been in operation in the Bronx since the 1980's.

Old Irish Bakery Store

In 1992, the new owners of the store started to expand its selection of products offered to its ethnic Irish customer base.

Ssourcing quality food brands from Ireland proved difficult and attention was turned to importing the products directly.

The first container of food products from Ireland arrived in the spring if 1995. Other retailers in the New York area asked if they could buy some of the imported products and a new business was born.

The import business separated from the retail store to concentrate on importing specialty food products from Ireland and the UK.

In 1997, we moved in to our first warehouse located at Bullard Ave in the Bronx. Three years later, we moved to a bigger location and then to our current location back in 2004.

Since then we have expanded our operations year over year.
