At Sunflower, we have always believed that it’s best to focus on one product range and do it really well! That’s why all our products are made with only the finest, freshest, local ingredients.
Since we first opened, we have been dealing with nearly the same local suppliers from day one. The relationships we have built over the last 15 years have seen our business grow. As our suppliers’ businesses grow, fundamentally, our commitment to using the best produce we can source has never changed!
Every great sandwich starts with great bread…
Patton’s Bakery, now one of Northern Irelands largest baking companies, has been our partner baker of choice since 2008, based in Newtownards.
This family-run business, headed by Warren Patton with over 25 years experience, delivers the freshest quality loaves and rolls, 6 days a week, not to mention sausage rolls and other treats, all baked with care and love, the traditional way.
When it comes to salad and vegetables, only the freshest will do!
Down Wholesale, based in Donaghadee, was established in 1968 by the Cairns family. They have been providing us with the best, local produce since our very first day. Their mantra, “Quality is the difference”, has lead to a long and beneficial relationship.
Delivering us more!
For over 70 years, Lynas Foodservice, Irelands largest catering supplier, has supplied local restaurants and eateries with an ever-growing range of products.
As a trusted name in the industry, we know that we are getting the best quality, from cooked meats to cheeses, chutneys to paninis. Our long-established relationship has lead to Lynas being one of our main suppliers.
Pinkertons of Armagh have over 50 years of experience, providing the best quality pork products processed in their purpose-built plant. So we know when we order, our sausages, bacon or pulled pork has always come from happy pigs!
The secrets in the sauce!
Based in Newtownards, Rich Sauces is Irelands largest supplier of all things saucy! With so many topping our sandwiches, subs and salads, they are the natural choice for our menu.
Sometimes we get asked if we make our own mayo, but with over 100 litres of mayo used every week, we leave it up to these guys, and just like us, they never compromise on quality, which is why we love their range!
Some of the finest around the world.
