Who We Are
Trudies Catering Kitchen is based outside New Ross, Co. Wexford. It was set up on the 1st of September 2000 by Trudie and Michael Power. Within weeks we had four additional team members and have grown continuously to 22 team members today. In 2003 business had grown considerably and we had outgrown our existing premises. We moved to our current building in May 2003, where we have grown and expanded annually. Initially, we produced sandwiches and salads. We now provide a banqueting service to the domestic and corporate sector, catering for functions of all sizes and all occasions.
We now supply Tesco, Caulfield-McCarthy Group, Pettits, SuperValu, Dunnes Stores, Centra, Spar, Londis, Scallan's Wexford, Gala Stores, Mace Stores, Waterford Institute of Technology, Hook Lighthouse and numerous shops, hotels and restaurants in Leinster.
The company has won numerous awards, most notably the EIQA National Hygiene Award for manufacturing and distribution in 2007. We were finalists in 2005 and 2006. In 2010 we also won the EIQA first place in the Processor and Producer category.

Since the business was set up, it has grown from strength to strength. The product range has expanded from sandwiches and pre-packed salads to bulk-sized salads, lunch packs, rolls, open brown bread sandwiches, wraps and pasta salads. The banqueting service provided cold meat and salads.
