Whites Speedicook


White’s has been based in Tandragee on the same site for 175 years and its growth and development was the contribution to commercial milling made by successive generations of a single family- the White family. Its success is down to investment over the years in brand, scale and technology- since the company’s inception in 1841 it’s never stood still always innovating and always growing. We pride ourselves in taking time but believe it’s worth the wait; from carefully selecting only the finest quality grain to slowly kilning to deliver the distinctively nutty taste of White’s Oats, we guarantee only a perfect oat makes it into your bowl.
