This breakfast workshop will give an unprecedented view behind the scenes at the new state of the art Pallas Foods distribution centre in Blancardstown.  This is a must attend event for anyone interested in supplying the foodservice sector.

Since the early 1980s Pallas Foods has evolved into one of the leading foodservice distributors on the island of Ireland under the leadership of the Geary Family.  Pallas Foods is now part of Sysco (March 2009) and has a team of 978 people dedicated to providing quality products and services to its customers.  The company offers fresh, frozen, ambient and non-food products across the island of Ireland through its own delivery fleet.

They operate from central warehouses in Newcastle West, Co. Limerick, Seaforde, Co. Down and North Dublin, in addition to a network of regional distribution centres across the country.

This event is being led by LEO Fingal.
