Its premium quality deli meats are now available sliced and pre-packed for the convenience of the customer, the company said. A great solution also for retailers who don’t have a deli counter in-store, it added. To further grow this segment and attract new shoppers, Carroll’s has launched two new premium innovative products. Carroll’s Off the Bone Delicatessen Ham is a superior quality product, carved off the bone and each slice is thick cut. It is made using 100% Bord Bia approved Irish pork and comes in two flavour variants – Traditional and Honey Roast (RRP €5). For more information, visit here.
