In the 1870’s John Thompson’s grocers shop embarked on a journey with an approach to business that has ensured the company survived everything from a bombing in the ‘blitz’ in 1940 to various acquisitions and a turbulent marketplace, to become the largest multi-species feed mill in Europe.
With over 150 years’ experience feeding the animals of Ireland Thompsons have the knowledge to support farmers in improving their business, while making sure that all animals reach their true potential from the inside out. Dairy, beef, sheep, pig, poultry and horse feed are all manufactured on the York Road site, where Thompsons ability to adapt have ensured that different ideas, talents and strengths have been brought together to evolve with an ever-changing agricultural landscape.
A positive approach to promoting agriculture, both within the industry and on to the consumer, is something Thompsons are keen to do. Supporting events such as the ‘Open Farm Weekend’ gives Thompsons the opportunity to get behind an event that brings together like-minded people to achieve a common goal, showcasing farming at its finest.
