 Wholegreen started out of an interest in and passion for the health benefits of plant based foods. After winning a bronze in the National Blas na hEireann awards for cold pressed juices Anna decided it was time to think bigger and she opened Wholegreen. This vegan deli offers real choice and showcases how varied and nourishing a plant based diet can be.

All the food is freshly made using high quality seasonal ingredients and everything is cooked from the heart. Wholegreen has become a welcome addition and recognisable brand for good food in Letterkenny. Anna has certainly made an impression turning her passion into a thriving business.
