Having had a successful year of awards so far during 2021, Aldi continues to sweep up wins at national and international product award programmes. Recent announcements from the Cáis Irish Cheese Awards and World Cheese Awards cement further wins for the retailer.

Earlier this month, Aldi had success at the Cáis Irish Cheese Awards, which took place on the 9th November in Killruddery House in Wicklow.

Speaking about these recent award wins, John Curtin, Group Buying Director for Aldi Ireland said; “We know our customers want the very best Irish products, so the great news of these most recent awards from the Cáis Irish Cheese Awards and World Cheese Awards comes as no surprise!! We pride ourselves on working with Irish producers who ensure their products are created using only the best ingredients, which ultimately reflects the quality of the products we stock on our shelves. Congratulations to Carbery Group and Glenstal Foods!”
