Our Story

Creating nutritious healthy meals and gourmet soups since 2009.

Big Pot Co was established in 2009 by Alison Seaney in Co. Tyrone, and from the start has been focused on creating nutritious, healthy, gourmet soups and meals. Although Alison is a Food Technologist, growing up on the farm is where her passion for food and recipe creation really started:

‘I was so lucky to grow up surrounded by fresh produce, which is where my focus on using local produce in our Big Pot Co range stems from.' 'I started my professional career with a large, well known Irish food company and after many years at the company where I gained in-depth knowledge about the food industry, I decided to take the leap and branch out on my own to deliver my vision for fresh, tasty and convenient soups - and I’m still doing what I love all these years later!’

We have been located in Cookstown’s Loughry Campus since we started, which is well known as the centre of Food Excellence here in NI.

Our award-winning products use both traditional and on-trend flavours – all of which are made by hand in small batches to ensure consistent, great tasting soups and meals, time after time.

From the start focus was on the following core values:

Sourcing fresh local ingredients where possible

Providing home-made quality convenience

High quality fresh, affordable, clean label, authentic traditional recipes

The very first product we produced was our Vegetable Broth, which continues to be a popular staple within our range today! As well as our acclaimed soups, we have since branched out into delicious ready meals (our Tasty Pots) and meal tubs so we truly have something to offer everyone, and all tastes.

A few years ago, my husband Malcolm joined the team and our two children Jack and Ella love getting involved in creating (and more importantly taste testing!) Big Pot Co’s new products at home to make sure only the tastiest recipes are used for our products!

I hope you enjoy my Big Pot Co soups as much as I love making them!

From our Kitchen to Yours: Simple Real Goodness.
