About Us - FMCG Distributor

Ampersand are a family owned business. We have been engaged in the importation and distribution of convenience products on the Irish market since 1947.

 

In 2006 we diversified and changed our name to Ampersand. The “&” symbol commonly used as the link between paired words, such as Sales & Marketing. Our name Ampersand conveys who we are and what we do.We are the link in the process between brand owners and the retail trade.

 

Trading with all retail groups we have established our position as a key player in the convenience sector. We successfully build our brands and provide an excellent level of service to 3000 FMCG customers.

 

Ampersand are the No1 FMCG distributor in Ireland.
