Den duo hopeful of 'Money for Jam'

Ballinagh's Kieron and Claire Moran are set to appear on this week’s episode of Dragon’s Den

One Cavan couple who have been delighting local pallets for the last number of years will be hoping that an injection of capital from a Dragon will bring their business to the next level. Ballinagh's Kieron and Claire Moran are set to appear with their jam business as one of four pitches on this week’s episode of Dragon’s Den next Sunday at 9:30pm.

The husband and wife duo entered the lucrative jam and chutney business three years ago and believe that their unique flavours have made them the “Willy Wonka of jam making”.

Their flavours including their bestselling jams such as: Blackcurrant and Guinness jam, Raspberry and Tiramisu and Strawberry & Bubblegum. At present their range offers a traditional flavours with a twist. Moran's boast that 90% of all their produce is sourced from local farmers.

Moran’s are entering the Dragon's Den in search of €40,000 investment for 10% equity from the dragons. Both Kieron and Claire and graduated the food academy programme with Musgraves and Supervalu.

The business was set up in 2010 and in 2012 just when the business was beginning to take off Kieron fell off a 35 foot building, breaking both legs and ankles setting the process back until 2014 when they came back with a vengeance ready to take Moran’s Homemade Jam’s and Chutney’s to the next level.

Moran’s products are stocked in over 200 Supervalu stores across Ireland, are available in over 100 independent trading stores and also do their own distribution across the entire country. The Irish jam and chutney market worth an estimated €32 million per year this could be a really interesting business idea.

New Dragon Chanelle McCoy joins Gavin Duffy, Barry O’Sullivan, Alison Cowzer and Eleanor McEvoy in the Den.
