Kellogg’s Corn Flakes
Founded in Singapore in 1985, Koka is Ireland’s most loved Instant noodle brand. A pantry staple in homes across the country, Koka noodles satisfy a growing consumer demand for delicious, convenient snacks to eat at home or on-the-go.

Old El Paso
Old El Paso is an iconic global brand that brings Mexican food to Irish households.
With the increase of in-home meal occasions, consumers are more open to trying new cuisines in recent years. Plus, the simplicity and position as a family favourite makes Mexican and Old El Paso an appealing choice for consumers. Confident scratch cookers looking to try new and different foods in a convenient way reach for Old El Paso components, while less assured cooks tend to look for full meal solutions, using the kits to improve their skills and grow confidence. Consumers love that with Mexican, you can build the meal around personal preference with this sort of customisation.
The latest campaign ‘Make Some Noise’ celebrates how good food can bring us all together. The campaign aims to get more people to share in the vibrancy and culinary inspiration that Mexican food can provide by turning Fridays into ‘Fajita Fridays’. Mexican can be enjoyed right through the week with Meatless Monday, Taco Tuesday and beyond using the wide range of easy to use Old El Paso kits, carriers, seasonings and more.
Erin soups have been at the heart of mealtimes across Ireland since 1963. A much-loved Irish brand, Erin soup recipes capture the rich delicious taste of quality ingredients, every time.
Perfected over almost 60 years, the range includes Simmer soups, Hotcups and Condensed soups and are available in a wide variety of flavours – from traditional Irish favourites like Oxtail and Country Vegetable to delicious Cream of Chicken and Potato & Leek. New to the range, Erin Soup favourites are now available in a Gluten Free range.
Whether it’s a hot pick-me-up on a cold winter’s day, or an ingredient that’s used to create family favourites like hearty casseroles or creamy pasta bakes, Erin soups are bursting with savoury flavour and aromas.
