We are Kepak Foods Division UK

Food innovators and pioneers of the micro-snack industry, we produce some of the nation’s favourite convenience foods: Rustlers and Feasters and sell our products into a variety of supermarkets, convenience stores and high street restaurant outlets


The origins of Kepak can be traced back to Ireland in 1956.

When Martin Keating and his two sons Liam and Noel, opened a family butcher shop in Kilrush, Co Clare. Following continuous expansion over the years, Noel Keating established his first abattoir in Clonee, Co Meath in 1981 and from this platform the Kepak Group was built. Today, the Kepak Group is still owned by the Keating family and it’s head office is based in Clonee, Co Meath Ireland. The group is split into two divisions; Kepak Red Meat and Kepak Foods Division, which is us!




Based in Kirkham, Lancashire, all our Rustlers and Feasters products are produced in our factory, while our commercial teams primarily deal with the marketing and selling of our product. We offer our successful applicants a unique insight into what it’s like to work in the many varied departments that make up our business. Everyone plays a crucial role in developing and delivering the products that we are all extremely proud of and passionate about.
