Tyrrells' Brand Transforms And Expands In Premium Sharing Crisps Segment

KP Snacks acquired Tyrrells in 2018, a gluten-free chip brand that faced challenges in justifying its premium pricing. To transform the brand’s image, a new brand platform called ‘Tyrrellbly Tasty’ was introduced, which targeted adults over 45 and emphasized the distinctive English character of Tyrrells. Tyrrells' prices were also increased by 30% in 2019. Tyrrells has since experienced significant market share growth in the premium sharing crisps segment, expanding from 12.6% to 15.3% between September 2019 and December 2021.
