The country's favourite vegan twins have announced an exclusive partnership with foodservice giant Musgraves.
Dave and Steve Flynn, otherwise known as The Happy Pear, are known for their vegan and vegetarian café in Greystones, as well as their food products which have appeared on SuperValu shelves around the country.
Musgrave, owner of SuperValu, announced recently that they had secured an exclusive partnership deal with the Flynn brothers. This means that Musgrave now has the rights to the production, distribution and marketing of all Happy Pear retail products.
