Organico is a small independent family business
run by sisters Hannah & Rachel Dare. Organico offers dedicated, individual service
which depends completely on the passion and energy
of our fantastic
team of staff
, many of whom have been working with us for years. When Organico was started in the early 1990's by Alan Dare it was a one-man show, run by Alan with a little help from his (little) daughters, who loved playing shop! Now Organico comprises a Shop
in Bantry a Cafe
and a Bakery
; and in total employs over 30 people.
Our team includes: Fleur, Liz, Christine, Ceri, Carla, Dee, Helen, Viv, Hannah, Katrina, Gearoid and Sile in the shop, Liam & Kathrin in the Bakery ; Jessie, Santhe, Hannah, Brid, Katie, Adam and Rachel in the Cafe and Maricel, Josh, Lisa and Rosalind in the kitchen. Tali works on our online shop, Catherine does all our posters and our newsletter and Eithne in the office makes sure we pay our bills on time!
When it comes to good food, we are a pretty enthusiastic bunch. If you have any questions about recipes, naturally good foods, or hard to find ingredients do drop us a line or call in if you are local. We stock predominantly organic foods, all either organic or local fruit and veg, organic wines, ports, sherries, and lots of good quality natural medicines, food supplements and natural 'clean' beauty products.
Whenever possible we like to buy from local suppliers. We also like to stock fairly traded goods. We have our own Organic liscence which allows us to sell our vegetables loose rather than having to package them like many shops do.
If you are interested in joining our team please call in and introduce yourself or email us on organico bantry at gmail.com.
