Porridge pioneer White’s (www.whitesoats.co.uk), who has been milling and producing time-honoured porridge oats and oat cereals in Tandragee, Co. Armagh for more than 175 years, has signed a distribution agreement with Empire Bespoke Foods (EBF) to supply its range of porridge oats, mueslis and granolas, including its multiple Great Taste Award-winner White’s Organic Jumbo Oats, to retailers across Great Britain.
The partnership builds on the success of the iconic Irish food brand in GB and will further strengthen White’s trading relationships in this market at a time when healthy eating is top of consumers’ and retailers’ agendas.
