Davisons Quality Foods are a family run business in the famous 'Orchard County' of Armagh. We have over 100 years experience in the apple growing industry and we excel at producing the finest apple products for a wide range of customers. Our current customer base includes manufacturers who process for the major multiples, including Tesco, Marks & Spencer, Sainsbury and ASDA. We also supply quality apples and processed apple products in a wide variety of formats for many independent bakeries, jam and sauce manufacturers and similar trades.
Our extensive orchards are stocked with Irish Bramley and Golden Delicious Apples, the latter used for pollination. Our orchards are maintained in full accordance with the Department of Agriculture Guidelines. No hazardous chemicals or insecticides are used and the result is production of perfect Bramley Apples. We prepare a range of Diced Apples, Sliced Apples, Milled Apples, Apple Pulp, Apple Puree, Pouched Apples and Canned Apples, using only the finest quality fruit. Our raw material has been washed and prepared under strict hygienic conditions.
In 1988 we opened our first processing plant to process our own fruit. Since then we have expanded and now process over 1 million apples every week. We ship the finished products to Europe, UK mainland, Republic of Ireland, and to local Northern Ireland industries. We maintain full quality control systems and implement HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point), and have been accredited at higher level by European Food Safety Inspection Service (EFSIS) in 2002. We have also maintained BS EN ISO 9002 status since 1998.
While our extensive apple growing experience enables us to produce the finest quality fruit and our quality policy ensures that our processed apple products are of the highest quality for the end user we also have developed and maintained an infrastructure whereby efficiency exists in all aspects of the company. We have a professional, highly trained and dedicated workforce who can produce the required products in minimum lead time. We have the capacity to fulfil orders at very short notice when required and we have experienced and dependable carriers for transportation to ensure that our apple products are delivered on time and in perfect condition.
Our company office has been developed and modernised alongside the apple growing business and our vast experience of over 100 years in the business ensures that we offer our customers the highest levels of service possible. Our order processing systems and accounting are fully computerised using modern high-end software packages including Sage Accounting Software.
