Own label success
The Grocer Own Label Food and Drink Awards have taken place in the UK. So why is this of interest to us?
Well, both Aldi and Tesco won awards for some of their own-brand products, some of which are on sale here. But of Lidl's five medals (three gold and one silver), three of them were made by Irish producers.
So congratulations to gold medal winner Oakpark Foods for their Deluxe Irish Unsmoked Dry Cure Rindless Back Bacon Rashers and to Olhausen who won a silver for their Deluxe Premium Pork Sausages, both made exclusively for Lidl.
Another silver was scooped by Mc Evoy Family Foods Ltd for their Lidl Deluxe Seafood Chowder.
