Aldi has announced that it has won 53 awards at this year’s Great Taste Awards, including 2 stars for its Specially Selected Cashel Blue Cheese, its Specially Selected New York Style Pastrami and its Butchers Selection Irish Fillet Steak with results announced yesterday, 21 September.
With a number of products performing incredibly well in this year’s awards, Aldi said that it is 'over the moon' to have secured the most awards for a private label range in Ireland.
Speaking about the success at this year’s awards, John Curtin, group buying director of Aldi Ireland, said, “We take pride in sourcing as many locally produced and Irish made products as we can, and to see these products winning awards on an international level is something that we, and our amazing suppliers should be very proud of."
"We know that our customers want to purchase products that not only taste great, but that are grown by and sourced from farmers and producers in the local community,” he added.
Leading Private Label Range
Having had a very successful year at last year’s awards, the Aldi said that its team is 'thrilled' to have secured their position of Ireland’s leading private label range.
