Lidl Kickstart Programme

Several Food NI producer members have made it through a tough Dragon’s Den style pitching process to be listed in Lidl’s Kickstart programme.

They include Woodlab Distillery, Tyrone with their Symphonia Apple Gin; Green Fingers Family with their Energy Balls and Lecale Harvest’s Slow Cooked Confit/Sundried Tomato Tapenade from Down.

Bertie’s Bakery’s Protein Rolls will be on the shelves as will Blackfire Hot Sauces from Antrim and Cloughbane Farm Foods ready meals from Tyrone.

From Armagh, Long Meadow’s Irish Craft Cider and Armagh Cider Company’s Spiced Apple Punch have both made the cut.

The products will be on the shelves across 220 stores from 19th September 2024 while stocks last.
