Bowl-A-Granola in Focus

bowl-a-granolaThis week’s Food Academy In Focus piece looks at Bowl-A-Granola, based in Galway, established by Siobhán Joyce.  The perfect way to start a healthy 2017.

Siobhán Joyce set up her business, Bowl-a-Granola, in her home kitchen in 2012, both through necessity following redundancy and a desire to change paths and work in the food industry. She had spent 10 years working as an environmental officer and was happy with the challenge of a complete change. She began producing handmade granola and muesli to sell at Galway’s farmers markets and in a few independent shops.
