We’re proud to share the news that Blanco Niño tortilla chips can be bought in the UK and Sweden – thanks to the incredible efforts of our team.
Our team has established some fantastic partnerships in the UK with a number of household name retail outlets including Ocado and Daylesford Farm, which is big news for us. Our tortilla chips are also available to retailers through leading premium wholesale distributors, Cotswold Fayre, Auguste Noel and Holleys.
Meanwhile in Sweden, we have a distribution partnership with House of Liquids, and you can find our tortilla chips in a range of brilliant independent stores including Urban Deli, Deli Verkstan and Borgeby Kryddgård.
Our Founder and CEO Phil said: “I’m really proud of the recent launching of our tortilla chips into the UK and Nordics. Only a few months ago the odds were stacked considerably against us. When the pandemic hit and the hospitality and foodservice shuttered almost overnight, we had little choice but to fast-track our plans to launch our tortilla chips to retail in Ireland. We did that, and now our tortilla chips are being sold by over 360 retailers across Ireland and counting. I’m optimistic for what the future has in store in the UK and Nordic markets – the feedback has been incredible so far – so hopefully this is a sign of things to come.”
Thomasina Miers, founder of the Mexican restaurant chain Wahaca, had this to say in support: “We’ve long been supporters of Phil and all the team at Blanco Niño. They have been supplying us here in Wahaca with authentic nixtamalized soft corn tortillas for some years now, and have always been a true pleasure to work with.”
“People now more than ever are in tune with the quality of food, how it’s made and where the ingredients come from. A belief and passion for doing things right is something both our businesses share. We were really thrilled to hear they secured the Ocado listing, as the tortilla chips are super tasty and with zero shortcuts taken in making. They have been working towards this for years. We wish Phil and all the team the very best and look forward to working with them into the future.”
We also have a number of new products in development scheduled for release over the coming months into 2022. So it’s full steam ahead.
We’d like to take this moment to thank our customers, suppliers, partners and backers for their unwavering support – it means the world to us. A special thanks to our 360+ Irish stockists for supporting small independent producers like Blanco Niño, and welcome on board to our new stockists in the UK, Sweden and beyond.
