WG Buchanan and Son
You will know this company by their more customary name “Buchanans”, as this is the branding you see on their packs in supermarkets. They supply a wide range of cereals, pulses, rice, dried fruit, culinary nuts, seeds, cake decorations. The company is renowned for its iconic Soup Mix – a time honoured favourite for generations of families and still their best-selling product.
This family-owned company has been dealing in wholefoods since 1871 and currently at the helm is Jonathan McVeigh, grandson of one of the company’s co-founders – William McVeigh.
In addition to their main 25,000 square feet purpose-built facility, the company has recently built a stand-alone nut packing facility next door, both of which are managed under robust allergen risk assessments and control plans. Having both their head office and production and warehouse facilities neighbouring each other ensures seamless communication throughout the business.
They work closely with local transport companies to ensure prompt deliveries both inward and outward of their facilities in Carrickfergus, to the benefit of their expanding customer base.
