ALDI picks up 49 awards including 8 two-star and 41 one-star accolades  

ALDI is delighted to announce that it has won 49 awards at this year’s Great Taste Awards, including 2 stars for Specially Selected Dublin Bay Prawns Pil Pil, Specially Selected Aromatic Duck Breast Fillets, Chanchan Garlic Chilli Rayu and Pure Pressed Apple Juice.

Results were announced Monday, August 1st with dozens of well-loved ALDI products being recognised for their exemplary taste and quality, making ALDI Ireland’s No. 1 Great Taste Award Winner for 2022.

Speaking about the retailer’s success at this year’s awards, John Curtin, Group Buying Director of ALDI Ireland, said: “The entire team here at ALDI is beyond proud to once again be among the winners at this year’s Great Taste Awards. At ALDI, we are passionate about delivering taste, quality and provenance whilst always guaranteeing unbeatable value. We know our customers want products that are not only delicious but also produced locally. That’s why we always strive to source as many Irish made products as possible. To see these products triumph on the international stage is immensely satisfying to us and a testament to our amazing suppliers.” 

Having enjoyed great success at last year’s awards, ALDI is delighted to solidify its position as Ireland’s leading private label range. Great Taste, organised by the Guild of Fine Foods, is widely regarded as the world’s largest and most trusted food accreditation scheme. Since 1994, thousands of products have been put through their paces and subjected to Great Taste’s notoriously rigorous judging process. An expert panel of figures from all corners of the food world, including chefs, restaurateurs and food critics, blind taste each product without any knowledge of brand or label. This makes for a truly impartial judging process and means that customers can trust that only the best tasting products will earn a seal of approval from Great Taste. 

With products from across the core and Specialbuys range earning accolades at this year’s Great Taste Awards, ALDI has cemented its status as the top performing Irish supermarket as well as one that is dedicated to supporting and showcasing the best of Irish produce.
