Keogh's Crisps Secure Major Contract With Emirates
Keogh's Crisps of North Dublin has secured a major contract with Emirates.
The deal will see the family business reportedly produce an estimated one million bags of crisps to be served on their planes on an annual basis.
The premium crisps will be available to Emirate's first class passengers only. The brand was selected by the Emirates Group following a blind tasting of 15 different crisps, reports RTE.ie.
The announcement was made yesterday at Marketplace International, Bord Bia's annual food buyer event in Dublin.
Keogh's secured 8% of the overall Irish crisp market last year while exports are now set to grow substantially with the announcement of the Emirates deal.
The 400-acre farm will be increasing potato production to fuel growth to meet its current three-year expansion plan, which aims to increase productivity by 50%.
"Bord Bia's Marketplace is an invaluable platform for Irish producers to gain access to overseas markets," commented Tom Keogh, the company's managing director of Keogh's Crisp.
Keogh's award-winning potatoes and crisps are grown and cooked on the family farm.
