We at Irwin’s are excited for the Fall 2013 re-launch of the Rankin Selection. All of those delicious flavours that you have come to know and love will still be available in all major supermarkets throughout the UK and Republic of Ireland
Irwin’s Bakery recently teamed up with Tourism Ireland to give fresh-thinking foodies across the UK the chance to win an exciting epicurean adventure. The competition asked for British gourmands to offer their take on what constituted a ‘Great Irish Menu’ with the focus on quality local ingredients and featuring the Rankin Selection Irish bread range as a key component.
The competition took place in March around St.Patrick’s day with customers downloading an app to tell them how Irish they were – ‘tap a da mornin’ to ya!’

Have you tried our new bagel range yet?
Irwin's have launched bagels in three great varieties; Cinnamon and Raisin, Brown and Plain.
This latest product launch will see the Portadown based bakery, which celebrated its centenary in 2012, supply over 500,000 packs of toaster ready bagels annually to all major retailers and convenience stores throughout Northern Ireland.
John Hopkins, Sales Director, Irwin’s Bakery explains why the family bakery has branched out into bagels,
“Bagels are the fastest growing category within morning goods in Northern Ireland – up 5.2% since December 2011. At Irwin’s we continue to adapt and grow our product range in line with consumer trends and we have seen an increasing demand for traditional products – such as the much-loved Nutty Krust and innovative products like our Muffin Loaf. We believe the key to the success of the bagel is its versatility – it can be eaten at breakfast, lunch or as a snack anytime of the day – covered in a favourite spread, toasted, made into a sandwich or eaten as they come.”
Irwin’s has also launched a 400g lighter fruit loaf- Fruit Toast. John Hopkins continued,
“As well as launching Irwin’s bagels into the Northern Irish market we have developed a product called Fruit Toast – it is a lighter version of the traditional and very popular fruit loaf in a small sliced loaf format. The loaf which is baked everyday for freshness is packed with sultanas and can be eaten as an all day snack – again increasing the amount of times consumers can enjoy the product. With over 100 years of baking experience behind us, we’re always keen to combine the traditional with the inventive and look at new ways to develop our product range and offer something new to the consumer.”
Irwin’s pre sliced bagels are available in stores throughout Northern Ireland and come in packs of five and Irwin’s Fruit toast is available in stores through Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.
