Established in 1979, Carroll’s is an Irish producer and distributor of branded and private label chilled food products including deli ham, pre-packed sliced cooked meats, and chilled ready meals.
Carroll’s operates from a single production facility located in Tullamore with approximately 325 employees and supplies products through all of the major grocery retailers in Ireland in addition to a large number of independent retailers and convenience stores throughout the country.
In April 2015, CCI alongside the Carroll’s management team completed a carve-out of the business from Aryzta AG. Under CCI’s ownership, Carroll’s generated strong revenue and earnings growth through increasing its penetration of its client base with a higher rate of sale for existing products and new listings.
In February 2021, CCI completed the sale of Carroll’s to Eight Fifty Food Group, a company backed by a UK private equity firm, CapVest.
