Snack manufacturer Tayto adds another meat snack company to its growing portfolio

Crisps and snacks giant Tayto has bought a pork crackling company in England in its latest acquisition

Northern Ireland chips and snacks company Tayto has acquired meat snacks company The Real Pork Crackling, in what is already its fourth acquisition this year.

Tayto, which is based in Tandragee, Co Armagh, already owns another pork scratching snacks label, Mr Porky.

Former owner Chris Cunliffe will continue to lead the business as well as taking on a wider role as chief operating officer for pork products within the Tayto Group.

Over the last few weeks Tayto has also announced the purchase of bankrupt popcorn manufacturer Pop Notch in Maghera, with production moving to Devon, where it already owns Portlebay Popcorn.

And related company Montagu Group has also announced the purchase of Uvenco Vending, franchise business Snack-in-the-Box and Drinkmaster.

Tayto chief executive Paul Allen said the latest deal was "an excellent fit for Tayto Group - we are both family-owned businesses".
