History

Like his father before him, Philip Meade Sr. had a knack for growing potatoes and vegetables. He set up a potato business in 1977, and by 1982 had officially incorporated into the Meade Potato Co. at his home farm in Braystown, Lobinstown, County Meath. While potatoes formed the core business in the early years, Philip Sr. quickly branched out to source any produce needed by the supermarkets he supplied. This adaptability, allied with complete dedication to quality and service, enabled the company to grow; by 2009, such was the volume of Meade lorries on the small roads around Braystown , the company privately funded a new road. With Philip’s sons now at the helm, and the old offices and warehouses at full capacity, the company expanded into a new office building and state-of-the-art warehouse in 2012. The following year a wind turbine was erected to allow for more sustainable energy usage, and new production lines added to increase capacity and efficiency.
