After eight mazing years, we have made the sad and difficult decision to cease production of our much-loved Chilled Pipin Pear product. Due to the challenging trading environment and high price increases we are experiencing across the board, we simply cannot continue to manufacture and sell our lovely dishes for a price that would be reasonable to charge parents.
From December 2022, our chilled pots of delicious and nutritious Pipin Pear baby and toddler meals and our private label Mamia pots will no longer be available in stores. We are so sorry for the inconvenience this will cause to the many families who love and rely on our meals.
I would personally like to thank all of you, our fantastic customers, for all the love and support you have given us over the years. From our very humble beginnings trying out recipes for my own two children in the summer of 2014, to launching in stores nationwide in 2015, it has been an extraordinary adventure. Hearing from parents how much their little ones loved our meals meant the world to me. Creating the best alternative to home cooked meals in the market is something that I was, and will continue to be, incredibly proud of.
We are delighted to confirm that we will continue to sell and grow our Freggie Bites snack range and we’re very excited to add some new products in the months ahead.
I know there are a small number of children with particular dietary preferences and needs who will only eat our meals. If their parents would like to contact us, we will try and help you as best we can.
Finally, I would like to thank all the AMAZING team past and present in Pipin Pear, TCFG, Bord Bia, LEO Waterford, the retailers and all who have worked so hard to create our wonderful range and nurtured it like it was their own, working with you never felt like work. It has been one hell of a rollercoaster ride with highs and lows but with so much laughter and great memories made along the way.
From the bottom of my heart!
