Builín Blasta Predicts Record Turnover in 2023

By Dave Simpson

Spiddal, Co. Galway-based cafe and bakery Builín Blasta is predicting a record turnover of more than €1.2 million for its business in 2023.

Details

This news comes as a result of Builín Blasta being handed a seasonal contract by Aldi to sell its smoked-onion mayo at all 152 of its Irish stores.

The increase in retail sales is expected to deliver an estimated tenfold growth in wholesale turnover, worth €500,000, over the next 12 months.

Aided by funding from Údarás na Gaeltachta, Builín Blasta has scaled up significantly to meet the anticipated nationwide demand. Production of its smoked-onion mayo and the Spiddal-based cafe and bakery’s other sauces, chutneys and dressings now have their own dedicated manufacturing facility, which has added another four full-time roles to the business, on top of the 18 full-time and seasonal staff members employed at the cafe.

All of these factors, combined, are set to help Builín Blasta triple its total turnover to €1.2 million in 2023, in the space of just three years.

Statement By Owner And Chef

Builín Blasta’s owner and chef, Heather Connolly, said, “We knew our smoked-onion mayo had a bit of a cult following, but we were surprised to get through to the final round of Grow with Aldi at our first attempt. We are very proud of our one-of-a-kind product and love that customers are fanatical about it, too. The Grow with Aldi initiative is going to provide a big boost for our business and means we can confidently make investments in new equipment and staff – something that was on the cards for a long time, but is now a reality.”
