Manhattan – The name comes from America, the home of popcorn, but Manhattan is a 100% wholly owned Irish company employing over 50 people at its Finglas factory in Dublin. The company manufactures and distributes a range of exciting snack foods, of which popcorn is the fastest growing.
The company started in 1957 from humble beginnings with our Managing Director, Donal O’Neill, pioneering the American method of popping corn here in Ireland. Before long, Irish people recognised the unique taste of Manhattan popcorn, and as demand grew, a new bigger premises was required.
Manhattan came to Finglas in 1977 growing steadily to the size it is today. A walk in the vicinity of the Finglas based factory is an experience, which many people remark upon as their senses are assaulted by the wonderful aroma of freshly popped corn.
Despite its very contemporary look and packaging, Manhattan popcorn is as authentic as the original popcorn the Native Indians made many centuries ago. Popcorn is one of the healthiest snack foods you can have. Indeed in the 1600′s the colonial housewives put popcorn to practical mealtime uses and served it with cream and sugar. This was the first “puffed” breakfast cereal.
Manhattan have always had a policy of offering best quality at affordable prices, so our popcorn comes in a range of 15g, 30g and 100g packs as well as 30g Cheese flavoured packets.
Other products in the Manhattan snack range include Salted Peanuts, Dry Roasted Peanuts, Pistachio Nuts, Cashew Nuts, Chilli Nuts and Manhattan Crisps.
