“The right person needs to be able to speak confidently to small groups of people of all ages and be able to learn and retain information easily. But perhaps most importantly of all, they must possess the willpower not to nibble the crisps as they make their way down the production line.”

Tayto Castle tour guides will take visitors on a fun exploration of the production process including a look at how the humble spud is transformed into a crisp, how it is flavoured and then packed.

“Full training will be provided”, continued Elly. “To help equip our Tayto tour guides with the skills and knowledge they need to perform their role. They will learn all about the crisp production process, Tayto’s history and how we became Northern Ireland’s favourite crisps.

“Over the years we have had countless schools, community groups, VIPs, and people of all ages and from all over the world through our doors. We are thrilled to be on the verge of once again offering tours and will be making an announcement very soon about when they are kicking off,” concluded Elly.
