The Standard Brands mission is to deliver consistently safe and reliable products that make firelighting, barbecuing and cooking as convenient and enjoyable as possible.
Our legacy stretches back over 200 years and includes the creation of the first commercial kerosene firelighter in 1936. It was an instant success and remains the cornerstone of our portfolio today.
Our portfolio contains household names and category-leading brands in a number of global markets, from the UK and Ireland to Eastern Europe and Canada.
Our products provide outstanding value for money and are engineered to light easily first time, every time – and to burn hotter for longer, indoors and outdoors.
We fully embrace our environmental responsibilities, and continuously implement initiatives both large and small to maintain and improve our credentials in this area. Our efforts are both local – including the area where our Irish factory is located and where many of our employees live – and international.
In 2008, we successfully launched our Sustainability Initiative and have made significant changes to the way that we operate as a business and as a production facility.
The Standard Brands portfolio covers comprehensive, high-performance, premium products comprising firelighters, firelogs, liquids and charcoal.
