Multi-award-winning Irish Free-From granola secures Ocado listing

After high consumer demand, following a preview at Selfridges Taste the Emerald Isle event this summer, Homespun Foods has secured its first national listing in the UK with Ocado for the brand’s Quinoa Crunch ‘granola’.

Hand-made in West Cork, Ireland Homespun’s Quinoa Crunch is a multi-award-winning twist on granola, made by blending quinoa pops, raw nuts and berries. Gently baked in coconut oil, it is light, crisp and full of slow release energy. It is gluten, wheat and dairy free contains no additives and is naturally sweetened with honey, cinnamon and vanilla.

The range includes two flavours, Pecan and Cranberry, and Goji Berry, Cashew and Coconut.  Both are Organic, high in vitamin E, fibre and magnesium and contain iron, folic acid and potassium.

The award-winning products have been recognised in Ireland for their great flavour, versatility and health benefits, with current accolades including four Free From Food Awards (three golds, one silver) and a Irish Quality Food award.

Erica Sheehan, founder of Homespun, commented: “This UK listing is a huge step for us, from first starting out on a small stall at Dublin’s Honest to Goodness farmers market, to now being sold nationwide. I have always been interested in wholefoods and plant-based nutrition and am passionate about taking well-known recipes and giving them a nutritious twist. Consumer interest and demand for wholefoods has really increased over the last few years and I’m thrilled to be part of that journey.”

Quinoa Crunch is now available on Ocado, RRP £4.99
