Pharmafoods is a leading Irish company that has been at the cutting edge of food processing, packaging and inspection technology for 25 years.
Our story began in County Tipperary in 1990, when a young biotechnology and food science graduate, Dermot Brett, started his career in the Irish dairy industry.
After honing his considerable skills as manager of several leading dairies, Dermot set up as a consultant using his expertise to help companies develop a range of products.
The next step involved assisting individual companies to manufacture their finished products, and he founded Pharmafoods in 1995.
The company quickly expanded, moving into the supply, installation and service of process packaging and food inspection and technology throughout Ireland.
In 1998, Dermot had a meeting with Paolo Mondini, son of G. Mondini, founder of the world’s number one tray sealing company. Mondini was so impressed with PharmaFoods, it became its exclusive sales partner for the island of Ireland. The business flourished and is now the largest supplier of tray sealing equipment in Ireland.
PharmaFoods’ successful sales partnership with G. Mondini caught the attention of other leading companies, leading to PharmaFood’s expansion into start-to-end line processing and innovative inspection technology.
Today, PharmaFoods collaborates with world-leading equipment suppliers across the EU, UK and the US.
