The Christmas supply of Ballymaloe Relish is secure despite a recent fire at the Little Island production facility.

An electrical fire in September meant all production stopped for several weeks.

The rapid response of Cork and Midleton Fire Brigade prevented the fire from spreading throughout the building. There was damage caused to the warehouse and electrics caused and there were several challenges re-installing the electrical system and replacing sections of the roof.

However, through efforts by staff, the company has been able to secure enough product to ensure that the relish is stocked on shelves across Ireland for Christmas. 

Production has recommenced at the Ballymaloe Food facility in Little Island after repairs were made to the building's roof.

"It’s hard to express our gratitude for the efforts that the entire team here put into getting our Christmas orders of relish, cranberry sauce and ham glaze out as well as the support of our local service providers who gave up evenings and weekends to ensure our stock got to shop shelves," a spokesperson said.
