Editor of Checkout magazine Maev Martin said: “The relative stability of the Top 100 Brands’ top-ten membership indicates that well-established and home-made brands are holding their own in the Irish market.

“Despite the continued rise of private label, and legislative changes in relation to packaging and the recent sugar tax, Ireland’s best-known and loved brands continue to innovate and thrive.”
