Irish supermarket supplier moves to London

, , ,

O’Kane Irish Foods, the biggest importer of Irish foods into the UK, has moved to a new London facility.

The decision to move is part of the company’s plan to strengthen its online business. YourIrishshop.com, a fully-owned subsidiary of O’Kane Irish Foods, supplies Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Morrisons and ASDA.

“I have been looking around for a suitable facility for about three years now and whilst a few came up I didn’t feel that the landlords were quite right for me,” said Eddie O’Kane, founder of O’Kane Irish foods. “With LCP I’ve found the partner that will allow the business to grow over the next 10 years. That was evident in the flexibility shown from early in the negotiations. I got the impression right from the start that they also believe in long-term progressive relationships rather than the bog standard tenant/landlord relationship.”
