Aldi crowned number one Irish supermarket

Aldi has been crowned the number one Irish supermarket in the International Taste Institute awards, which was held in Brussels in May.

The retailer saw 11 of its products recognised for quality and taste, the highest number of accolades awarded to a retailer at the event.

Four of the discount supermarket chain’s products received a coveted 3 Star Superior Taste Award.
Aldi’s Specially Selected Tipperary Dry Aged Black Angus Ribeye Steak, was the first Irish product to receive the Crystal status by the International Taste Institute last year, an honour bestowed on a product for receiving the elusive three-star accreditation for three consecutive years.

This product was once again awarded three stars this year, bringing it closer to the much sought after Diamond Award, which is awarded when a product receives three stars on its 7th occasion.

This year Aldi’s Specially Selected Irish Black Angus Rib Eye Steak was also awarded the coveted Crystal status by the international panel of judges, having now won 3 stars, three years in a row.

Aldi’s Specially Selected Irish Black Angus Fillet Steak – 32 Day Matured and their Butcher Selection Aged Irish Sirloin were also among the products that were awarded a 3 star Superior Taste Award this year. Each scored above 90 percent making it an “exceptional” product.

Seven more Aldi products were awarded a 2 Star Superior Taste Award, scoring between 80 and 90 per cent, making them a “remarkable” product.

They included the Specially Selected Tipperary Dry Aged Irish Black Angus Striploin Steak 36 Day Matured and the Butcher Selection Aged Irish Fillet 30 Day Matured.
