Marks & Spencer have introduced new seasons Irish Saxon potatoes to their stores.
The potatoes have been grown by Jamie Rankin in Donegal and are available in all M&S Food stores priced at €3.99 for 2.5kg.. The Saxon variety of potato is best eaten boiled as this brings out the flavour of the potato.
The Saxon potatoes are packed and supplied by Co Antrim based company Glens of Antrim Potatoes.
Conrad Digan, Marks & Spencer Head of Selling & Marketing for Ireland said: “We are delighted to be introducing another Irish product to our shelves from yet another terrific potato grower. The Saxon is a popular choice for our Irish customers and we are confident that they will be pleased to see the new potato in our stores.”
Glens of Antrim Potatoes will package and supply the Saxon’s and Michael McKillop, their managing director said, “We work closely with our dedicated team of growers to ensure that we deliver the very best in locally sourced, high quality produce. We’re thrilled to be supplying Marks and Spencer with our Saxon Potatoes, which is a seal of approval for the quality and taste of our products and also further strengthens our existing partnership.”
