Oliver Carty VOA Foods bagged two prestigious titles at the 2017 Blas na hÉireann Irish Food Awards in Dingle, County Kerry, recently.
The Athlone based supplier won a gold medal for Aldi’s Mixed Peppercorn and Garlic Butter and received a bronze medal for Aldi’s Garlic and Herb Butter.
Ireland’s premier food awards, the Blas na hÉireann Irish Food Awards celebrate and reward the very best of Irish produce and the passionate, driven individuals behind it. With gold, silver, and bronze medals awarded, the awards focus solely on taste, with the winners chosen as a result of blind tastings by a team of Ireland’s top food experts.
Aldi Ireland’s group buying director, Finbar McCarthy, said: “The Blas na hÉireann Irish Food Awards recognise and pay tribute to the very finest foods produced in Ireland, so we are delighted to see Oliver Carty VOA Foods achieving national recognition. At Aldi, we are continuously working to extend our Irish product offering, introducing new and exciting Irish sourced products and engaging more and more Irish suppliers.”
