Whether youre a first timer or an Olympic wannabe, good nutrition is essential for performance. The food you eat fuels exercise and getting the right balance can help give you the upper hand.

Testimonial from DAA
Due to the nature of the operational business in Dublin Airport - 5 locations across the airport were chosen to host a breakfast event. Kelkin provided 5 members of staff to set up and facilitate each location. The Kelkin staff were very knowledgeable about their product, explaining the nutritional value of each product, encouraging staff to try products that they would not normally choose. The event was very well received by the 200 DAA staff who attended on the day and as a testament to Kelkin, Kelkin products are now very visible in most staff break-rooms across the airport.

New Series Starts Wednesday June 22nd 7.30PM TV3
We are delighted to announce our continued sponsorship of 'How healthy are you?' this year. How healthy are you? Is an Irish-made Health and Lifestyle series which debuted on TV3 in September 2010. The show is presented by Nutritional Therapist Elsa Jones and the second series is planned to be broadcast as part of TV3's Summer schedule this year. Stay tuned for further details.
As soon as we heard about 'How healthy are you?' we recognized that the programme would be an ideal fit with Kelkin. For years we have been working to educate our consumers about the importance of healthy eating and healthy lifestyle choices, through on-pack communication, free nutritional classes and our nationwide roadshows. Our sponsorship of 'How healthy are you?' reinforces this important message to consumers.
Elsa's mantra is 'small changes, big difference' and this belief, similar to our own, is at the core of this quirky and fresh series.
How healthy are you? already has a huge following on facebook - check it out here

Kelkin juice range re-launch!
At Kelkin we are continually researching new ways to improve the quality of our products. We are therefore pleased to announce that we have just re-launched our entire juice range in handy new PET bottles. Our Multivitamin Drink and not from concentrate Orange Juice are available in both 1 litre and convenient 330ml bottles. The range also consists of a new Cranberry Juice with 25% cranberry juice and No Added Sugar, which is a unique selling point on the market. Our Cranberry Juice is sweetened with grape juice instead of adding sugar, making it a much healthier alternative as people strive to reduce refined sugars in their diets. Also revamped is the Kelkin Multivitamin Drink which, like the Orange Juice, is rich in Vitamin C and also has 10 other vitamins including Vitamins A, E, B1, B2, B12 and folic acid among others. Our new juice range is now available in most supermarkets nationwide.
