Genovese are a family run business, who are a very Irish company with a very Italian name. Established in 1999, they are the oldest fresh pesto producers in Ireland and epitomise what clean food is all about. Genovese hand make their range in small batches, blending the taste of fresh healthier ingredients and using techniques that allow those flavours to develop naturally and unhurried. They couple their understanding of the craft of making pesto with a deep love for additive free food and a passion for producing hugely flavoursome products using minimal processing.
Genovese produce pesto and tapenade to time honoured Italian recipes using only traditional Italian ingredients. Their suggestion for the festive season is to: “Add our pesto to your cheese or charcuterie board this Christmas.”
