Antrim snack company Golden Popcorn wins €1m Aldi deal
Antrim-based manufacturing food firm Golden Popcorn has won a €1million (£0.8m) deal with Aldi in the Republic of Ireland.
The contract will see Golden Popcorn manufacture popcorn under the Snackrite brand for Aldi in a new multi-bag format for their Irish supermarkets.
Invest Northern Ireland's director of food and drink John Hood said: "This deal is a significant win for Golden Popcorn which has quadrupled its market share in the Republic of Ireland in recent years. The support we offered to help Golden Popcorn purchase new equipment is helping the company double current production capacity and has enabled it to service a wider range of contracts, particularly in the ROI and GB markets."
The company is set to explore the Middle East market and grow its staff to 21.
