Aldi’s Irish producers win big yet again at the Irish food Oscars, with the producer Morgan’s Fish taking home the Seafood Innovation Award
Aldi and its Irish food producers continue to sweep up at national and international level, winning a total of 36 accolades at this year’s Blas na hÉireann awards – being awarded 9 gold, 13 silver and 13 bronze awards.
There were also further celebrations with the announcement that Aldi supplier, Morgan’s Fine Fish, won the Bord Iascaigh Mhara Seafood Innovation Award for their Dublin Bay Prawns with a Garlic & Herb Butter which are supplied exclusively to Aldi.
Aldi’s gold medal winning products were produced by suppliers from around the country, including ABP Meats, Abbey Farm Foods, Carroll’s Cuisine, Connolly Meats, Donegal Rapeseed Oil, Lough Gill Brewing Co., Oakpark Foods and Pipin Pear.
Speaking about yet another successful awards, John Curtin, Group Buying Director at Aldi Ireland said; “Quality and Irish produced food are key pillars for Aldi, and we ensure that we work closely with as many Irish producers as possible, meaning our customers can enjoy quality, Irish produce, at the very best prices. We’re over the moon to have had yet another successful year at the Blas na hÉireann awards, with our Irish suppliers once again receiving the accolades that they deserve. We always love going down to Dingle and attending the weekend in person and are already looking forward to next year when we can hopefully celebrate our successes together in person, but in the meantime, we would like to congratulate our suppliers, their teams and the Buying Teams at Aldi on their successes.”
The largest competition of its kind, the Blas na hÉireann Irish Food Awards are recognised as an industry gold standard, with products blind tasted by a panel of expert chefs, restaurateurs, academics, and journalists for the coveted mark of Irish quality.
