Keogh’s Crisps has been named Irish Exporter of the Year by the Irish Exporters’ Association, beating major internationals including Irish Distillers and Diageo.
In a second win, the Dublin-based farming business was also named Food and Drink Exporter of the Year at a recent event that took place in Dublin.
According to Tom Keogh, CEO of Keogh’s Crisps, “The Irish market is a small market, and a strong export growth strategy is integral to the success of the business.
“This comes at a great time for us, with our greenfield expansion plans over the next three years.”
The announcement comes on the back of other recent wins for the authentic Irish crisp producer earlier this summer, including a listing on Ryanair’s 3,000+ daily flights across Europe and a Singapore Airlines contract.
Keogh’s Crisps are now sold in 17 countries internationally, accounting for 25% of the company’s business.
According to the Irish Exporters’ Association, ‘Keogh’s Crisps is one of the fastest-growing food manufacturers in Ireland.’
Commenting, Simon McKeever, CEO of the Irish Exporters’ Association, said, “We are delighted to announce Keogh’s Crisps as the winner of the prestigious 2022 overall Exporter of the Year. Keogh’s Crisps showed impressive innovation, passion, and growth strategy.
“The judges were particularly impressed by their experience and expertise, which led to their fast-growing success in very competitive markets.”
