About Bunzl Irish Merchants

Bunzl Irish Merchants is the leading supplier in Ireland of non food consumable products into Retail, Foodservice and Healthcare sectors. Founded in 1959, Irish Merchants was acquired by the Bunzl PLC in 2007 and the business now incorporates Bunzl O'Mahony Packaging and Bunzl Catering Services.

Our Business Model

Our business model offers significant benefits to both customers and suppliers. We source our products internationally, working with top international brands as well as local suppliers, to ensure that our customers have access to the best and most suitable products to meet their needs.

By outsourcing the purchasing, consolidation and distribution of a broad range of non-food consumable products, our customers are able to focus on their core businesses as well as achieving purchasing efficiencies, freeing up working capital and simplifying their internal administration and, as a result, increasing their efficiency and improving their competitiveness.

Ethical Sourcing

Bunzl is dedicated to ensuring that minimum standards are met by suppliers in the treatment of staff and the environment. We regularly edit our suppliers to ensure that standards in pay and working conditions are met and that no unethical practices are used in the manufacture of the goods we provide to customers. We are also committed to the environment, we are a member of Repak, and our paper based products are sourced from renewable forests and comply with FSC and PEFC certification.
