Founded by the Boland Family of Capel Street, Dublin.

The company would have sold a number of products such as bread, biscuits, cakes, confectionery and flour, although over the years the biscuit became the company's main product. The company had a number of production facilities around the city such as the buildings around Grand Canal street and Dock as well as a distribution network.[1]

1870s Business purchased Pm's Mills (mills on the Grand Canal Basin).[2]

1916 The business was operating a large industrial bakery on Grand Canal St. This building was demolished in the 1940s[3]

In the late 1970s Boland's merged with Jacobs Biscuits Ltd., to form Irish Biscuits Ltd. with much of the production moved to premises in Belgard, Tallaght.[4]

The name survives today in a number of brands produced by Jacob Fruitfield Food Group, such as Custard Creams, Cream crackers and Bourbon creams. The name Boland's Mill on Grand Canal Dock is still clearly visible.[5]
