In the early 1990’s as the market began to change and some of our customers requested cooked turkey breast. Our late mother, Mrs. Teresa Hogan decided to cook up some plain, natural turkey breast in her oven at home. The customers loved it and as demand began to grow, we invested in a more industrial oven in a small cooking plant built in Rathcairn Co. Meath. This started out with just three part time staff cooking large bulk breast meat for Delis and butchers across Leinster.
Towards late 1990’s cooked turkey became increasingly popular and a new state of the art factory was built with the support of An Ùdaràs na Gaeltachta . In 2003, Faughan Foods ( Bia Faughan Teo) became one of the countries state of the art cooking facilities and we were able to expand our offering to producing sliced cookd meats aswell as bulk cooked meats.
This facility was recently sold (April 2017) to another long established Family Owned Business in the cooked meats sector - O'Brien Fine Foods. OBFF will continue to cook poultry products in Faughan Foods including under the Hogan's Farm Brand and for retailers as well as their own brand nationwide.
