C&D Foods Graduate Programme

About C&D Foods

At C&D we are working together to build a business that pushes the boundaries of the possible. Our pursuit of Excellence in everything we do combined with a positive attitude and belief in ourselves makes for a very exciting and fast moving place to work. 

C&D Foods first started producing Petfood from its base in Ireland in 1969. As a family business we initially focused on supplying Private Label canned petfood to the Irish and UK markets. Since that time production in Ireland has expanded to include Pouch and Alu-tray formats. In 2008 we joined forces with the ABP Food Group. Since then we have acquired a number of European manufacturing sites further extending our formats into dry, can, sausage and plastic trays. We are now and are now one of the largest Private Label Petfood producers in Europe supplying quality pet products to the major supermarket and retail chains.

Over the years sizeable investments in the business have ensured that the growth of the operation has spread into Europe. The company now has increased its initial presence to include major production facilities and sales offices in 11 locations around Europe.

With seven manufacturing plants across Europe and additional Sales offices in Germany, Italy, UK and France, we can offer our people many different experiences. We are ambitious for the future and want good people to join us. Our promise is the opportunity to develop and fulfil your potential in a respectful, dynamic and fast growing environment.
