It is a long way from the small agricultural merchanting business started by Bridget Brett and her four sons in Windgap, Co Kilkenny back in 1940. Jack Brett was the first Managing Director and his son James J is the Managing Director of the Brett Group since 1986. The present Board consists of six family members.

Since 1940 the company has evolved with the changing economic landscape of Ireland and the European Union. In the 1940’s Brett Brothers Limited were major exporters of rabbits and poultry to war torn Britain. As agriculture developed in the post war period the company became a pivotal force in supplying inputs and advice to farmers as farming moved from subsistence to commercial enterprise.


When Ireland joined the then EEC in 1973 Brett Brothers Limited pursued a major investment programme of expansion in grain handling and storage as well as the construction of a mill in Callan, which opened in 1979. The combination of modern technology with highly trained dedicated staff has established the Brett Family as one of the major players in modern Irish agriculture in the new millennium. The company services farmers throughout Leinster and Munster.
