ALDI was the top winner at the Irish Quality Food and Drink Awards, beating off stiff competition.

Over 50pc of Aldi’s supplier spend is with Irish suppliers, producers and manufactures, the company added.

Aldi struck gold to win 12 awards for its Irish own-brand range including the prestigious Overall Gold Q which is awarded to one product that stands out above all the other entries. 

The company's Irish products performed strongly across a broad range of categories while its Duneen Specially Selected Handmade Farmhouse Raspberry Yogurt received the Overall Gold Q acclaim, which is the highest accolade awarded to one product that represents the best of the best. 

In addition, Aldi’s Specially Selected Tipperary Blue was Highly Commended and Vive Rock Shandy was Commended.

Aldi Ireland’s Group Buying Director, Niall O’Connor said: “We are incredibly proud that Aldi’s Irish own-brand range has tasted national success at the inaugural Irish Quality Food and Drink Awards.

"At Aldi, we are committed to offering our customers an unrivalled combination of brand-like quality and value and by receiving such recognition we are able to demonstrate to our customers the outstanding quality of our Irish product range and prove that low prices need not mean a compromise on quality."
