    No great loss, for all their talk & marketing they aren't even Irish pork sausage.
    No Bord Bia mark on either brands.
    During the horse meat scandal years ago, Denny was the only brand left on the shelves.
    That tells you plenty where they source their raw pork material.

    I'd say if you saw a list of brands the top 10 food companies in the world own you'd be astounded at the number of products controlled by very few companies.

    Cash as a legacy thing, they are probably using Revolut by now

    Both Galtee and Denny's have been shyte for a very long time. Support smaller brands and buy locally made products.

    Meat has turned to terrible muck over the past 20 years, I eat it at the most 3-4 times a week. I never thought I'd say that, but here we are.

    They'll do a Cadbury's on it for sure.

    Denny, or their holding company...or whoever, ship chicken in from Holland, slice it and wrap it in packaging saying "made in Co Wicklow".

    Buy local from small suppliers, fcuk this misleading bullsh1t.

    Kerry Foods bought Galtee in 2009.

    Pre takeover Galtee ham was Bord bia approved
    Galtee sausages were 75% pork

    And

    DairyGold butter was the closest thing to real butter in taste. Now it’s low low ****e see attached

    Denny pudding uses Turkey meat instead of pork

    We love monopolies here in Ireland

    Tayto Crisps purchased by largo and then bought by intersnack which owns KP.

    It means they aren't paying for it by issuing me shares in the purchaser to the seller.

    Denny screams cheap, bland bottom of the barrel meat products. Avoid them at all costs if I can

    Galtee black pudding flavoured toilet cleaner anybody?

    I think Kerry/Denny have done a good enough job of that themselves already! Unless they reduce to spam level meat next

    It uses a small bit of turkey in addition to pork. But then, if you're fussy about the ingredients of your food, you're probably not the target market for a 1.50 chubb of white pudding.

    They couldn't have chosen a more horrible crowd to sell to... they really couldn't have.

    Exactly, you can see it here in this video. It looks at the major corporations dealing with every facet of modern life and who the institutional investors are. The bit about the top 10 food brands starts at 1.13. It's eye opening to say the least. These institutional investors hold shares in competing brands whether it be Coca Cola or Pepsico. It's a real spiders web of interconnections, or as the video states, follow the money. It goes deeper, it's a 45 minute video, but they summarise everything into the first 10 minutes or so.

    I have been eating DairyGold all my life. I’d query the authenticity of that photo, because I’ve never seen it light colour (apart from the Light version).

    It spreads the same as ever, and melts on toast. I think you may have fallen for crap posted on the internet.

    First they took our homes, then they took our rashers.

    I saw an exposée on them recently in Netflix. They're one of the big meat processors in the US, and seem to be just a horrible company. Staff peeing in bottles on the production line because they can't take breaks without getting fired.
    I don't recall all the specifics.
    Grossed me out, and the guy the company is named after seems to be a serious di***ag.
