The contract was secured following financial and business development support from Invest Northern Ireland and will see Golden Popcorn produce its healthy crisps for Aldi Ireland’s Snackrite brand, which will be on the shelves of over 140 Aldi Ireland stores. 

Sean McClinton, managing director of Golden Popcorn, said: “The snack industry has changed dramatically over the last five years as consumers look for healthier alternatives to standard snacks. Healthier snacking doesn’t have to be boring and Aldi Ireland’s new Satin Crunch crisps which will be produced by us certainly fit the bill. We purchased new machinery a number of years ago which has enabled us to develop and add new products to our portfolio and meet the demands from key customers like Aldi. 

“The Republic of Ireland is our main market and this deal is yet another step forward for our business. Invest NI’s business development support has been invaluable in helping us to build relationships with high profile supermarket chains like Aldi Ireland. Its support has assisted us to build our brand and expand our product range to meet the needs of the increasing appetite for healthier snacks. We are optimistic that this deal will be a catalyst for success in other markets.”
