The Foods of Athenry have been baking the Brownie Cookie Shots and the Blondie Cookie Shots with great success. Our customers have really taken to them and we have gained many fans over this time. Bite sized, low calorie and they taste great. We love the reaction of people when they realise that something this good is free from gluten and vegan (depending on your preferred cookie shot of course) and come in a resealable pouch! read more....
We are delighted to be shortlisted for the Matheson WMB Female Entrepreneur Award 2018 as part of the Women Mean Business awards which are now in their 12th year.
"When I first started baking in 1998, I never imagined that I would be nominated for an award like this. The Foods of Athenry has won over 60 taste awards since we started and this is a first time nomination for myself. As an ‘accidental entrepreneur’ I’m flattered and delighted. Baking and consumer needs have changed so much over the years that I have often thought of writing a go-to "how to” baking book.
We all know that breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day. For a coeliac and gluten intolerant man, woman or child it`s even more important to start the day with the right gluten free cereal. The Foods of Athenry have a number of different cereals and granolas available and with these breakfast bowls it`s an easy way to make sure your breakfast is filling, has lots of variety and includes at least one portion of fruit to get your day started right.
We've put together six different breakfast bowl ideas, inspired by and using our six different gluten free cereals and granolas, which now come in 450g boxes and in individual serving packs. All these recipes are gluten free and all can be made dairy free with substitions. Some are even naturally vegan, like our Nutty Crunch Granola which is sweetened with fruit juice!

Like any newborn, the name is carefully chosen. After all, you’ll carry it with you for a long time. With a food company, the same considerations re: personality, how it rolls off the tongue, how it feels; all combine to name the baby.
As time goes by, because with any luck - every night you go to bed smarter than when you woke up – you see where improvements can be made. A business is an evolutionary process, and to stand in the way of evolution is to wither and die. There's been lots of extra work going on behind the scenes here and we're excited to finally share what we've been working on.
The Foods of Athenry are delighted to have been awarded three new "free from" accolades in last night's national FreeFrom Food Awards in Dublin.
The food and drink industry awards aim to recognise, encourage and reward the achievements of free-from producers and the excellence of their products. In 2017, the Foods of Athenry won awards in three food categories - crackers and crispbreads, bars, and biscuits and cookies. The awards are:
