In 2017, we developed the Kickstart Supplier Development Programme to give food suppliers the chance to showcase their products through Lidl stores across the country. Now 2 years later, we are proud to feature a range of fantastic products from 47 suppliers!
We have taken one step further to grow our relationship with our suppliers. By developing and supporting previous Kickstart suppliers, we helped them develop new products ensuring that we can offer our customers the very best of Ireland & Northern Ireland
