The cereal market in Ireland has gone from strength to strength in the last few years, with its positioning as an easy-to-prepare and nutritious breakfast helping to sustain market growth. However, associations of some cereal types with childhood obesity represent a key challenge for the market, and moving forward we will likely see a more concentrated effort among cereal manufacturers to make their products healthier.

Some questions answered in this report include:

How will grain prices affect the cereal market?
What impact will changes in the children’s population have on the cereal market?
What types of cereal do Irish consumers use?
What factors influence the type of cereal that consumers buy?
What attitudes do consumers have towards cereal?
