Budget clothing store Primark has agreed a deal with an Irish food company and will be selling vegan snacks in its European stores.
The 'super shots', from Sligo-based company Good4U, will be available in 280 Primark stores from around mid-February, as part of a deal rumored to be worth 2 million Euro.
Each pack costs around £1.
The brand makes a number of products, including 'super shots', containing dried fruit and pulses, and energy balls.
Good4U says its uses 'only the best' ingredients.
According to the company: "We are so proud to say that we have the most amazing sprouts and healthy snacks on the planet lovingly made by a wonderful team who take as much pride in making these healthy treats as any oompa lumpa.
Commenting on the Primark deal, Co-founder Laura O Sullivan said the company is 'extremely proud' of the deal.
She added: "As a family, we have to pinch ourselves when we take a step back and appreciate what the company has achieved in a few short years.
"We have a fantastic team on board who have helped make the success possible and with even more new contracts on the horizon."
