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 2018, following the sale of its US Division, Greencore has restructured to a refocused UK business.
