About The Happy Pear
David and Stephen Flynn started The Happy Pear in 2004 in Greystones, Co. Wicklow, to create a happier, healthier world and build community, to make healthy food and living accessible to everybody, and to encourage people to eat more veg! Today they are renowned wholefood and plant-based chefs, award-winning and international bestselling authors, YouTube stars, regular international, inspirational speakers and media contributors, and they have an impressive combined online and social media reach of around a million.
The Happy Pear business now employs around 170 people and it has grown into one of the most vibrant and renowned award-winning businesses on the Irish food scene, with several award-winning products available through multiple retailers SuperValu in Ireland, and Waitrose in the UK. The food phenomenon, and Irish business success story, now comprises: three wholefood cafés/food stores; a sprout farm producing wheatgrass and healthy living, organic sprouts and microgreens; a Happy Pear branded food manufacturing and distribution business producing award-winning products; a coffee roastery producing hand roasted Happy Pear coffee, using the best specialty coffee available; and a range of delicious fermented foods.
