Snack food manufacturing company Largo Foods has today announced its name change to Tayto Snacks.

Tayto Snacks' portfolio includes Hunky Dorys, Hula Hoops, King, KP, and Perri, with more than 2 million products produced each week for markets in Europe, Australia and the Middle East.

The business operates out of an 80,000 sq ft facility in Ashbourne, Co Meath, and employs almost 400 staff.

Speaking at the announcement today, Tayto Snacks Managing Director Jeff Swan said: “The decision to rename the company Tayto Snacks came naturally from conversations we were having about business transformation.
