Irwin's Bakery - Corporate Social Responsibility

Skip Navigation


Irwin’s is a family company, based in Portadown since 1912 and through our day to day business we try to incorporate the needs of our local community.


Here are some of the ways in which we strive to help our wider community.

In the Bakery:


  • We recycle all possible office materials (paper, plastic, printer cartridges), and reuse printed paper.
  • Waste reduction programme
  • Renewable energy; we recently switched to gas burning ovens reducing energy consumption  by 15% each year


In the Community:

Each year, the staff at Irwin's select a new charity to fundraise for. This year we have chosen Helping Hand which is a charity set-up by the staff at Royal Belfast Hospital for Sick Children. It aims to provide up-to-date equipment and aid in the rehabilitation of patients. A worthy cause!

Sports sponsorship:


Bakery tours for school children of all ages are carried out right-throughout the school year.

Irwin’s supports many local charities and events through staff fundraising, product donation and corporate gifts.


Our Corporate Social Responsibility policy is something we are developing and integrating with more areas of our business

We are keen to hear your suggestions on how we can develop our policy further.
