Glens of Antrim Potatoes, based in Cushendall County Antrim, grows and supplies potatoes to grocery multiples including Marks & Spencers, Asda, Sainsburys and Tesco.

The company has invested heavily in its growing and processing operations to ensure high quality products and complete traceability throughout the supply chain. Glens of Antrim works closely with its customers in developing the potato category through serving more discerning customer tastes.

In 2012 Glens of Antrim launched the Irish Lumper, a potato variety associated with the Irish famine in the 1840s, as part of its new heritage range. The Irish Lumper, a distinctive ‘knobbly’ shaped potato, has been cultivated and propagated from a handful of rare seedlings, and a specialist grower in Northern Ireland was used to achieve a yield which retained the distinctive shape and heritage of the Lumper but also excelled in taste and nutritional value. The Lumper won the IQFA 2016 Award.

GOA has recently ventured into their own range of crisps including Sweet Potato Crisps and Thick Cut Jacket Potato Crisps. They come in a range of flavours including Irish Whiskey, Mature Cheddar and Sweet Onion, Kickin’ Chilli and Sea Salt and Cider Vinegar.
