The famous milk brand, which has full cream, low fat, and skimmed variants, is available exclusively at Marketplace by Rustan’s and Rustan’s Supermarket branches.

RSCI CEO Irwin Lee toured Ambassador to Ireland Geoffrey Keating and Minister of State John Paul Phelan, TD at Marketplace by Rustan’s, Rockwell Power Plant Mall.

Ambassador to Ireland Geoffrey Keating and Ireland’s Minister of State at the Department of Housing, Planning, and Local Government John Paul Phelan, TD, were delighted to find one of their country’s most beloved brands on the shelves of a supermarket some 7,000 miles away from Ireland.

“It’s like seeing a bit of home,” says Keating. “I haven’t seen Avonmore in the Southeast Asian region before. This is a first and it’s a very nice feeling to walk into the store and see the display.”

Keating and Phelan were warmly received by Rustan Supercenters, Inc. CEO Irwin Lee during the event and joined by a group that included Rustan’s Commercial Corporation President Donnie V. Tantoco, Rustan’s Supercenters Inc. AVP for Marketing Ana Punongbayan, RSCI Wine Import Manager David Brissonnaud, Consul General and Vice-Consul of the Irish Consulate Philippines Robert F. Trota, Irish Food Board Southeast Asia Director Ciarán Gallagher, and Avonmore representatives Maria Victoria Fuentes and Ramon Fuentes in a guided tour around the store.

While it’s grown to become Ireland’s most purchased grocery brand, consumed by over 80 percent of households each day, Avonmore has remained loyal to its roots in supporting the cooperative of rural farmers who maintain free-range, grass-fed cows that are milked twice daily still owning a bulk of the multinational company’s shares.
