Glenhaven Foods signs major deal to supply Subway® across all UK & Irish stores with brand-new innovative coated cheese product

Irish frozen food processor Glenhaven Foods has signed a major deal with Subway® to supply all 2,400 stores throughout the UK and Ireland with an innovative new product of Cheesy Bites for the Hot Sides Menu.

With revenues reaching €55 million and a dedicated workforce of 170 employees, Glenhaven Foods is unwavering in its pursuit of significant growth.

Glenhaven, a long-standing family business in Wicklow, has worked closely with Subway International and utilised Subway’s extensive market knowledge to co-create a unique, premium side dish. The Subway Cheesy Bites are a three-cheese blend of premium Irish cream cheese, Emmental, and a natural Mozzarella that provides a luxurious cheese stretch.

Created to perfectly complement Subway’s classic menu, the new cheesy side dish is intended as a side or stand-alone ready-to-eat hot snack, specifically made to meet Subway’s customers’ tastes.

Commenting on the contract win, Emma Cahill, co-owner and brand manager at Glenhaven, said: “Securing a contract with Subway® is a major milestone for Glenhaven Foods, and we are thrilled to be chosen as their supplier for coated cheesy bites in the UK & Ireland.

“This collaboration marks our entry into the coated cheese market, and we are excited to showcase the quality and taste of our sustainably-produced Irish frozen produce. With our state-of-the-art facilities and a dedicated team, we are well-positioned to meet Subway®’s’ customer demand and deliver exceptional products.

“This contract is a testament to our commitment to growth and innovation, and we look forward to further expanding our dairy product portfolio in the coming year.”

Rusty Warren, senior NPD & innovation manager at Subway®, added: “We find Glenhaven a reliable and efficient supplier and look forward to developing the partnership in the future.”
