Greencore was established in 1991 following the privatisation of Irish Sugar. In 2001, the business diversified in to convenience food through the acquisition of Hazlewood Foods. Subsequently, the business has made a series of acquisitions and disposals to create Greencore’s current portfolio. In 2017, following the acquisition of Peacock Foods, Greencore announced a new reporting structure.
