Over at TV3 they’re no slouches when it comes to reeling in the sponsors for the station’s busy and bright Ireland AM breakfast show.

Nestlé Carnation has come board to sponsor’s the show’s cookery segment – so expect things to turn a little sweeter in the kitchen as the brand is an ingredient in all manner of home-made confectionary and TV3 has proven to be not shy about putting its sponsors to the fore.

Nestle joins a very busy roster on the programme which already has Proctor & Gamble as the title sponsor, as well as the sports segment sponsor, while the fashion item, the birthday club and the baby clinic are sponsored by I clothing, Easons and Bepanthen.

Local pain management GSK are to spend €350,000 telling consumers that its Panadol Actifast brand is made in Ireland. The campaign ,which includes a TV, digital and outdoor, as well as point-of-sale signage, features a “made in Ireland” banner. Its manufacturing plant in Dungarvan, Co Waterford, makes 7.5 billion tablets each year (the company has done the maths and worked out that’s 250 tablets every minute) – and exports to more than 70 countries. Explaining the “buy Irish” push, David Barrett, commercial director of GSK Consumer Healthcare in Ireland, said “We are very proud of the fact that Panadol tablets are made here in Ireland, but we know that this is not generally widely known. Our experience has also shown us that Irish people are keen to support products made in Ireland.”
