Glenisk Pop Up Shop: Getting Upfront & Personal

Glenisk has recently launched a new pop-up store in Dublin. Situated at the corner of Dawson  Street and Duke Street, the store is called Glenisk Upfront & Personal, playing on the theme of pop up and shop front, and celebrating the opportunity to meet customers in person. The store, which will open for 10 weeks, aims to demonstrate the versatility of its organic yogurt, through a series of creative flavour combinations of the sweet and savoury variety.

Glenisk’s Upfront & Personal is being managed by Christine Jordan, who has spent three months devising recipes for the store. The recipes feature many leading Irish food producers, like Goatsbridge Smoked Trout and Burren Smokehouse Organic Salmon, while also embracing global food themes. As well as smoked fish, savoury options include Carrot, Beetroot & Apple Salad with Orange Harissa Dressing; Greek Salad; and Mexican Bean & Avocado combinations. Each savoury dish is served with delicious Rosemary & Olive Oil Crostini, baked especially for Glenisk at Moore Street’s renowned Paris Bakery.


Sweet treats include Greek Style Natural Yogurt with Dark Chocolate, Orange, Pistachio & Honey; Turkish Figs in Spiced Syrup with Toasted Almonds; Fresh Fruit, Granola & Honey; and Banana, Caramel & Milk Chocolate. The store will also offer a wide selection of delicious Cheesecakes and Smoothies, prepared with Glenisk Organic Yogurt and Crème Fraiche.


Glenisk MD Vincent Cleary comments: “Glenisk celebrated 25 years in business last year; our fantastic growth in recent years has been achieved largely through embracing new ideas and developing new products. As we embark on the next 25 years, our Upfront & Personal store hopefully demonstrates our ongoing commitment to innovation. We’re delighted to have the opportunity to meet our customers in person and share our ideas; and we look forward to welcoming them to the store to hear their ideas. We can promise them a brand new approach to enjoying yogurt, and the best of Irish ingredients.”

The recipes will be updated each day and Glenisk hopes that customers will share their own ideas for flavour combinations. Savoury yogurt dishes and smoothies are priced at €3.50 while sweet dishes and  cheesecakes will be €3. Glenisk’s range of organic yogurt, fresh milk, fresh cream and crème fraiche will be available in the store, along with the brand’s goats milk and goats yogurt.

Glenisk Upfront & Personal will also host a selection of foodie events, cookery demonstrations and supper clubs.

  1. I was there on Monday and had the trout dish, it was really really yummy! Such a great idea! I wish more companies would do something like this.

    1. I can't wait to go. Love their yogurts anyway and have a whole fridge of them so would love to see innovative new ways of using them.
