Because Annalitten Foods is a family run business, we care passionately about our track record of providing quality eggs of maximum freshness to our valued customers.
In the 1950’s in rural county Monaghan, Patrick & Margaret O’Reilly began a small egg collection & delivery business to support their young family.
Patrick would travel the countryside collecting baskets of eggs from local farming families. Each egg would then be individually inspected for quality and graded by size on a small weighing scales.
Each week, when enough eggs had been collected, Patrick would load up his little van and make the long journey to Dublin to sell his eggs from door to door, stopping along the way to let his tyres cool down!
The family business prospered and soon Patrick had a lucrative van-run that included Grocery, Fruit & Veg, and Butcher Shops.
Since our origins, Annalitten Foods has evolved to become one of Ireland’s leading egg Producers and Packers. The O’Reilly family have never been afraid to invest in the latest production systems and egg grading equipment to ensure that our eggs reach our valued customers with maximum freshness and quality
Today Annalitten Foods is run by Michael & P.J O’Reilly and their sons, Damien, Keith & Matthew, the third generation of the O'Reilly family. 40 individual farmers supply us every week with Bord Bia Quality Assured eggs.
Our fleet of delivery trucks collect eggs from all over Ireland and deliver them to our factory daily. Here we process over 2.5 million eggs per week on the most modern egg grading equipment on the market.
Every egg is visually inspected and 36 individual checks are made on the eggs along the conveyor system to ensure that every egg delivered to our customers is of Class A quality.
The entire process ensures that every single egg is traceable from our farms to our customers.
