Facilities at North Tipp Food Works

Production Units

We have three food production units at our site. Which is situated in the village of Rearcross, Co. Tipperary. The units are 1000 sq.ft. in size.

Each has the following facilities:

  • large preparation room
  • office space
  • intake dispatch lobby
  • dry goods area
  • staff room
  • toilets/changing area
  • hygiene lobby
  • entrance lobby.

All three units have their own independent entrance door and roller shutter door. All panels and walls are to food hygiene standards. They include individual Water and ESB meters. The units have everything a growing food producer needs to expand their enterprise and bring it to a larger scale from the kitchen.

Timeshare Kitchen

The site also boasts a Development Kitchen. The timeshare kitchen is fully equipped with four burner stove, large scale ovens, stainless steel tables large scale food mixer to name but a few. The kitchen can be rented by the hour at an extremely attractive rate. Making it the ideal opportunity for producers at a product development stage to test run their recipes in a food hygienic area. The kitchen is also ideal for existing food producers and food business that require additional preparation space at busy periods during the year such as Easter and Christmas. A viewing area and board room lies adjacent to the development kitchen allowing training days and demonstrations to be held.

Training Centre

The training centre also contains two office spaces, with their own entrance. There is access to a staff canteen and toilet facilities on the same floor.

All of these facilities make the Food Enterprise Centre in Rearcross an ideal venue for a range of food producers. From a food producer who is at the ‘early days’ with product development up to a growing business seeking their own premises. Renting at our centre reduces the need to build a production facility. Which is an expensive and risky step to take.

The centre is situated on the main road between Thurles and Limerick city. The location of the centre allows access to a customer base across the Mid-West region.
