About the Pat Curran Award for Excellence in Customer Service

PPC Galway Ltd has been supplying Eskimo-3 to Irish households for the past 25 years and this year is celebrating 30 years in business. An Irish family-owned business, its founders Pat and Phil Curran started the company from humble beginnings in their semi-detached house on the outskirts of Galway in 1992.

Originally established as a practitioner supply company supplying herbal, homeopathic and nutritional products to practitioners all over the country, Pat and Phil placed a huge emphasis on quality products, integrity in business and first-class customer service.

As the business began to grow, PPC expanded into the retail sector with the renowned omega-3 product Eskimo-3. This is when Pat really came into his own, as his easy manner, brilliant communication skills and genuine interest in people proved invaluable in building the brand and developing strong relationships with stockists and consumers alike which have endured to this day.

Unfortunately, Pat passed away in 2014 following a short illness and his legacy is remembered each year with the annual Pat Curran Award which recognises excellence in customer service. Today the great work started by Pat and Phil is carried on by their daughter Olive and her husband Michael Donnellan.
