Glens of Antrim Potatoes has created a three-strong range of hand cooked crisps for Dunnes Stores for the retailer’s Simply Better portfolio.
The company, based at Cushendall in Co Antrim, a Food NI member, worked with Dunnes to develop Vintage Irish Cheddar and Red Onion, Clogherhead Sea Salt and White Wine Vinegar and Sriracha Chilli flavours. The new range of crisps is now on sale in Dunnes stores.
The crisps are all hand cooked by Glens of Antrim at its Cushendall plant.
Michael McKillop, managing director of Glens of Antrim Potatoes, a family business that employs around 60 people in one of the most picturesque and environmentally clean regions of Northern Ireland, says new crisps for Dunnes is a significant development for the business.
Established in 1972, Glens of Antrim is a longstanding supplier of a broad range of potatoes to leading retailers throughout Ireland, including Sainsbury’s, Asda, Dunnes Stores, Lidl and Marks & Spencer amongst others.
The family business began crisp production in 2015 and opened a new state of the art crisp production facility in 2018 at its main production site at Cushendall. This facility created additional jobs and production capability to export crisp products globally. Earlier in the year, the company secured export business in Singapore.
