SUSTAINABILITY

PRODUCTION & PRODUCE SELECTION

Our passion for providing only the best quality food led us to build a catering offering that centres around the finest raw ingredients. We look for produce that is grown, raised or made as close as possible to our central production unit on Pearse Street, in order to maximise freshness, minimise the impact on the environment and support the sustainability of our local communities. 

At our central production unit seasonal daily menus are produced for our catering and retail sites by our experienced and talented team of chefs and our pastry team.

SUPPLIERS: WHY IT MATTERS WHERE INGREDIENTS COME FROM

  • By supporting local farm production we acknowledge the 'face' behind the food we consume which keeps us connected to seasonal produce and the unique flavours and diversity of local crops

  • To support our local food economy

  • By buying from local growers we cut down on oil/petrol used through transportation, in turn reducing the impact on the environment

  • Local produce is fresher and therefore healthier

  • To support and maintain the world class Irish heritage of cultivating fantastic produce, meat and dairy products

  • KC Peaches continues to partner with our suppliers to educate and inspire our customers and clients about the outstanding quality and benefits of our products and to promote our philosophy 'Eat Well, Live Well'.

We believe that by nurturing supplier relationships we are able to provide the best ingredients possible to our customers.

Procure Wizard

Since the introduction of Procure Wizard we have been able to put in place a full 360° kitchen management solution that produces report on our waste. It encompasses everything that we do from menu engineering to stock control, ordering and allergen management. It allows us to integrate all departments in both our retail and catering sites by connecting to our EPOS systems to create flash reports at every stage of our service.
Our full Food Control system allows us to monitor our daily orderings. Stock control & waste levels. We are now able to create reports that can give us exact data that monitors our production scales and waste. This software enables us to only record waste at every KC Peaches site while also giving us the understanding as to why it has been wasted but more importantly provide the management tools to set in place a waste reduction plan.
