In 1976, Joseph started working in Mount Melleray Abbey's poultry farm. He worked there until its closure in 2003.
Having over 26 years experience and having built up a good relationship with many customers, Joseph decided to start up his own company.
Melleray Eggs began trading in 2004 and since then the company has gone from strength to strength. Melleray Eggs now has over 120 customers in supermarkets, shops and restaurants across Waterford, Cork and Tipperary.
Joseph O'Rourke is Managing Director of the business he set up over a decade ago. With almost 40 years experience in the industry, Joe has the knowledge to meet the needs of all his customers and still retains the passion to do so.
His son, Kevin, began working for the business on a voluntary basis in 2014 and joined formally in the summer of 2015. Kevin has a background in accounting and has several years experience in supply chain management.
Joe's brother, Donal, works for Melleray Eggs on a part-time basis and has many years of experience with customer relations. He has 5 years experience in the food industry and enjoys dealing with people.
Melleray Eggs is a family business that continues to grow, develop and innovate whilst still maintaining a personal touch, and tailoring value to all their customers.
