Irwin's Bakery is Northern Ireland's largest independent bakery which specializes in the production and distribution of traditional Irish breads across Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland and Great Britain.

Established in 1912, the family run bakery makes a wide range of products including batch breads, soda breads, rolls and muffins and cakes and biscuits. Irwin's breads currently account for around 85% of all Irish breads sold in Great Britain, spearheaded by the multi-award winning Rankin Selection Irish breads range, which it makes in conjunction with celebrity Irish chef, Paul Rankin.

Voted product of the year by Northern Irish Tesco customers, 'Nutty Krust' is Irwin's most successful product to date - its distinct flavour and texture are the result of a 40 year old recipe using traditional baking and fermentation methods.

In 2006, Irwin's acquired traditional-style cake and tray-bake specialist, 'Howell House' to introduce a specialist home bakery category. Irwin's invested significantly in the division in order to enhance its artisan capabilities and identity, including a strategic rebrand to 'Howell's Handmade'.
