Avonmore sells record 3.5m pots of cream after Christmas boost

Irish nutrition giant Glanbia sold a record 3.5m pots of Avonmore cream in December on the back of strong demand in the run up to Christmas.

This represented a 24pc increase year-on-year. The firm said the week before Christmas saw the highest ever volume of Avonmore cream dispatched in a single day, while December 2015 was an overall record breaker with the highest ever volume of cream dispatched in a single week and a single month.

Glanbia said the increase in sales was driven by increased consumer demand and growth across all Avonmore’s major distribution channels.

Glanbia Consumer Foods Ireland chief executive Colin Gordon said: "As economic sentiment continues to improve, consumers are increasingly looking for quality products which demonstrate real value.

"Our focus on delivering high quality products will ensure that Avonmore is well positioned to remain the most chosen grocery brand in Ireland into 2016 and beyond."
