It all started in August 2013, when the ideas and aromas of freshly baked bread were floating in the air. We got inspired, dwelt on them and started our own research on market requirements and customer needs.
With a very little offer of these specific types of bread, we saw the value of introducing a new product to the market that would satisfy customer needs. So we decided to start our new exciting journey.
Treatvale Company was born in October 2013.
It was a turning moment in our lives, and since then we have never stopped conquering mountains, constantly ascending to higher and steeper ones.
A pair of hands is enough for a family oven, but for production - in technology we trust!
Our relationship with this modern side of bread baking has started from December 2013, when we organized a tender for bakery equipment suppliers.
We welcomed a new year 2014 by employing our head baker and production manager. The wheel started turning, gaining speed and vividly responding to the needs and cravings of our clients.
Our first sales went out into the world, and we started to build an ever treasured family of our own regular clients.
In August 2014 all recipes were revised and improved by Backaldrine - baking developer with great reputation on a global international level. This served as a foundation to a new line of breads at a later stage.
This was the moment when cakes, sweet buns and pastries appeared on our production list, as we acquired the largest Lithuanian confectionery in Ireland (Daiva’s Cakes).
We started supplying Lithuanica Group.
We started cooperation with Mroz Retail.
Our courage in terms of adding new traditional and innovative products to the production catalogue, can serve as a baseline, for an exciting story of adventurous bread baking. To illustrate this point we can share just a few of our experiments that have come to stay in our product assortment; the biggest ones, as we are limited by space, but still we would like to excite you.
We have launched a new range of Moldavian traditional products, an unprecedented event in the market!
New line of French cousine products was launched.
“Fresco” cookies brand with a nationwide supply network was brought to the market.
Besides other things, we can include company takeovers we have executed paving the way to widening our assortment. In May 2016 our Lithuanian line has received a boost with the acquisition of the largest Lithuanian bakery in Northern Ireland (Raigedo Duona).
By February 2017 we have become a reliable supplier to a wide range of ethnic store all across Republic or Ireland and Northern Ireland.
Sixteen new lines of deli bar products were developed.
Bulgarian Breads were launched and various Bulgarian Ethnical Stores have joined our Partner’s List.
The Beginning of 2019 was marked by a new phase in our buns production. Investment into new packaging equipment for all types of buns, and marketing campaigns ran to support new improved sweet buns led to an increase in sales by 100%.
Our team consists of specialists, who behind their aprons, uniforms and suits are a nice bunch of individuals - all with great personalities, big hearts, warm smiles and passion for bread.
In September 2019 our company welcomed one more member of our family – a frontline manager responsible for deliveries and display.
We started to supply our produce to Supervalu stores!
Autumn of 2020 has been marked by the launch of a new range of Romanian products branded as Alexandru Bakery.
Our Raigedo Duona brand has broken into the market with its new logo, packaging and products, fulfilling the dreams of the Lithuanian community to have access to high-quality home-like products at reasonable prices.
Thus, we change the very meaning of “real Lithuanian bread” one-step at a time.
We have celebrated the end of the year 2020 with the birth of our premium brand - The Happy Family Bakery!
In February 2021 our bakery was listed with BWG Foods, one of Ireland's leading food retail and wholesale companies, which we value as a moment of our recognition on the battlefield of food companies. So our Products become widely available at SPAR and MACE stores.
April 2021 will be remembered as a new bread line launch month, while all in all year 2021 will leave its mark on our digitalization advancement: a specially crafted software will be fully implemented to automatically control all production, dispatch, delivery and forecasting processes.
The latest addition to our team is a new Polish Head Baker who has worked in leading Polish and internationally renowned baking companies like Diamant, Cream, Piekarnia Maciuś, Backaldrin…
