Jacob’s Successful Strategy

Jacob’s successful strategy of targeting a broader market base to include younger consumers, and a fast tracked product innovation pipeline, has resulted in driving new customers to both the category and the brand. Consumers are now buying Jacob’s products more often and buying more when they buy.


Innovating Ireland's No. 1 Brand

Innovations in Jacob’s healthier snacking range have seen the successful launch of Jacob’s Rice Cakes which saw the range become the number one brand in its category within two years of launching. Jacob’s also added its Mediterranean crackers range to complement its flagship Cream Cracker varieties, further increasing the brand's foothold in the under 35s market.
