Co Down food firm clinches deal with Scottish Spar stores

A Co Down food-to-go manufacturer has secured a deal with the Spar network for its new range of Planet Café food products.

DELI LITES, which is based in Warrenpoint, launched the range Planet Café range a few months ago and it now be available across more than 100 Spar stores in Scotland.

The six products in the range are inspired by flavours in the world and include Tóstas, Burritos and Paninis.

Brian Reid, chief executive and co-founder of DELI LITES, said: “Our vision from the beginning has always been to provide customers with more choice and excitement when choosing food on the move. Our Planet Café range is a celebration of much-loved world flavours, prepared with the finest ingredients that offer customers a more wholesome, tasty hot food option without compromising on taste or quality.

“With hybrid working now becoming part of everyday life, we expect a strong demand for on-the-go healthier lunch options, especially across the UK’s towns and villages as home workers decide to pop out for a healthy heat to eat lunch.”

Stephen Brown, head of food to go for C J Lang & Son Ltd, said: “We’re delighted to be working with DELI LITES to bring these new, innovative food to go products to our customers through our network of company owned SPAR stores across Scotland.

“At SPAR Scotland we’re always looking to continually improve upon our existing food to go offering, looking for new products to tempt our customers.  These products from Planet Café do just that and we’re excited to be the first convenience retailer in the UK to offer up these great tasting food to go products.”
