Dominican’s tasty idea

A group of students from a north Belfast school have proved they’ve got what it takes to impress some of Northern Ireland’s leading business people by securing a place in the Top Ten InnoTaytors challenge.

Pupils at Dominican College wowed judges with their creative and business-minded ‘InnoTAYTOrs’ proposal — a unique challenge created by local crisp and snack manufacturer Tayto and Young Enterprise Northern Ireland.

Students were tasked with devising a concept based on a new flavour, new shape or new packaging variant for Tayto.

Dominican’s proposal was called Poisionous Ark, which changed the packaging and detail of the bag.

The top 10 schools were treated to a VIP tour at Tayto Castle, Tandragee, where they also met Mr Tayto and sampled lots of tasty Tayto crisps and snacks.

Teacher at Dominican College, Mrs Eileen O’Halloran, said: “We are absolutely delighted to have reached this stage in the competition.

“This is a fabulous opportunity for our students to develop their creativity and innovation, and they have received great advice today on how to develop their idea even more.”

Pupil Bronagh Boyle said: “We can’t wait for the voting to start now and really hope we get through to the final.”
