R.Thompson & Son (Armagh) Ltd, trading as Farmlay Eggs, is a long established egg producer and packing company based in Armagh. We were established in 1913.
The 4th generation of the Thompson family continue to work and grow the business while retaining that personal approach which has ensured our customers keep coming back to the people they know and trust to meet their needs.
We operate from a modern 56,000 sq. ft. packaging and production facility in the heart of Northern Ireland; the company has two distinct and highly successful business divisions.
The first under the well-established and trusted Farmlay Eggs brand name. The company packs 5 million eggs each week of which 60% are Free Range, Barn and Organic.
Around 45% of these packaged eggs travel to GB-based wholesalers and supermarkets throughout England, Scotland and Wales – selling to consumers as either Farmlay Eggs or under ‘own label’ brand names. The remainder of the 5 million eggs packed weekly in Armagh serve both large and small local retailers, bakeries and other customers throughout Ireland.
We have also developed a Pasteurised Egg division alongside our egg packing business which is producing a high quality pasteurised liquid egg, which is supplied to bakeries and food service customers.
