Eoghan Donnellan, sales director, Musgrave Foodservices said: “I am delighted to be renewing this contract with a company of the size and prestige of Eurest Ireland. Just over three years ago, we signed our original three-year supply contact with Eurest and we are delighted that due to the successful partnership built up between our two businesses that this is set to continue for the next three year and hopefully beyond.

"With our recent acquisition of C&R Foods in Killarney and Variety Foods in Belfast, we are even more uniquely placed to offer a total supply solution to our customers including frozen, chilled, and ambient. This new contract with Eurest is a tremendous vote of confidence in Musgrave Foodservices from one of Ireland’s leading catering companies.”
