Irish Breeze is an Irish company which has been manufacturing cotton wool and personal hygiene products from its base in Drogheda, Co Louth since 1993.
We have over 50% market share for cotton wool products in Ireland, and have also secured important export contracts with leading British retailers including Sainsburys, Tesco and Boots.
We employ 40 people at our Drogheda plant and turnover is over €4million annually. More than three quarters of this is accounted for by our Irish Breeze and BabyKind brands.
The balance consists of non-manufactured products including our Irish Breeze-branded liquid soaps and bar soaps, sponges, and bathcare accessories.
Research and development
Our company has invested heavily in research and development. Our R&D unit and packaging design consultancy have over a dozen products with granted patents or patent-pending.
We have offered some of these innovative products to multinational brand owners on a licence-paying basis. In other instances, we have launched patented products under our own brand.
And the launch of our 100% natural DermaH20 WaterWipes in July 2009 will be a key driver of a new eBusiness strategy.
