Keogh’s Crisps Launch In NI
The Keogh family is launching its range of hand cooked crisps in Northern Ireland.
Retailers here will soon be able to stock up on the company’s range of flavours.
“It is not a decision we take very lightly,” advised Tom, the eldest brother of the current generation of Keogh’s.
“Recently we have made some big decisions about our crisp business – from providing gluten free products to adding new flavours to our range. We literally hand cook small batches of crisps on our farm in fresh sunflower oil on a daily basis so entering a new market is a huge step for us. That said, we are so proud of our product we want to make it available all over Ireland.”
Tom and his family also recognise that Northern Ireland is a nation of crisp lovers: “It’s why we are so excited about launching in Northern Ireland. We believe our crisps are the finest in Ireland and look forward to putting our product to the test.”
The Keogh family make their crisps in a converted potato store on their farm in the outskirts of North Dublin. Each spud is carefully sliced extra thick and gently hand cooked, skins and all, in an American kettle. While still warm, the crisps are seasoned using natural locally sourced flavours and packed in foil lined bags so they are as fresh as possible for customers to enjoy.
Keogh’s crisps have already won five Great Taste Awards and are Ireland’s only producer of a range of gluten free flavours including Dubliner Cheese and Onion, Atlantic Sea Salt and Irish Cider Vinegar, Atlantic Sea Salt, Shamrock and Sour Cream, Sweet Chilli and Irish Red Pepper and Roast Turkey and Secret Stuffing.
