Today the business is run by Patrick McCloskey, grandson of Paddy Sr, who has been involved in the company since 1985. In 2007, Patrick relocated the bakery to a new, state-of-the-art facility in Ballymakenny, Drogheda. As a Global Food Safety Grade A BRC standard site, it has enabled McCloskey’s to further expand its product range and reach.
Over the years, we have remained absolutely passionate about our produce, constantly searching for new trends and working to develop new products that capture the imagination. While bagels and Lithuanian breads may not have been to the forefront of Patrick McCloskey Sr’s mind in 1940, they are just two examples of the wide range of products that McCloskey’s currently offer; and although they may be a more recent creation, they are sprinkled with the same tradition.
Our dedication to our craft can be tasted on a daily basis, with our products available in our own stores and in a vast range of shops and supermarkets throughout the north-east of Ireland. Visit us in our bakery cafés or browse our online store to see our selection of celebration cakes.
