About Mileeven

Mileeven Fine Foods was established in 1988 by Eilis Gough from a hobby of beekeeping. Pure Irish Honey was our first product and still remains an integral part of our product offering today.  Now run by Eilis and her daughter Sarah, Mileeven Fine Foods continue to offer exciting new, high quality products to their customers. Our range includes organic honey, single source honeys like Manuka 10+ and Manuka 15+, organic preserves, fruit cakes, Christmas puddings, brandy butter and cranberry & port sauce. 

We now supply worldwide and our products are stocked in renowned stores like Harrods and Selfridges.  
We also supply award winner chef, Neven Maguire. 

The awards that we have received over the years confirm our quality and innovation.

Products


Mileeven's Original Range

Pure Irish Honey was our very first product from our own bees. 
Soon after we added a Honey with Jameson Irish Whisky 
and a Honey with Irish Mist Liqueur, these products still 
prove to be really popular today and add a really Irish 
product to your range.

Awards

Mileeven to date has won twelve Great Taste Awards since 1999,  a number of products have also made it through to the Championship rounds in London. In August 2007 we were also presented with the prestigious SHOP Award for 'Overall Innovation product of the show' for our range of honey spreads. Many of these awards are fought for by large multinational companies and so it is a great honour for a small Irish company like ourselves to gain such outside recognition.

We are accredited to the Organic Trust (License number 611)      

 Mileeven has full BRC Accreditation
