It’s always good to hear of local companies doing well and so it is with local food producers Newgrange Fine Foods whose produce went on sale nationwide as part of the Lidl Kickstart programme which showcases Irish producers.
The week long promotion, which started yesterday Monday 2nd of September, will see the company's Potato Croquettes and four of their Fresh Soups available in all 140 of Lidl's stores nationwide.
