Lidl Northern Ireland has awarded Fermanagh’s Crust & Crumb, the island of Ireland’s largest manufacturer of ambient, chilled and frozen dough-based products, an annual contract worth an estimated £24 million to supply an expanded line of pizza products across more than 1,000 UK and Ireland stores.

Based in Derrylin, Fermanagh, Crust & Crumb employs more than 300 staff and has been a preferred long-term supplier to Lidl Northern Ireland since 2013.

The new, dramatically-expanded Lidl Northern Ireland supply contract will see the leading local bakery supply 20 varieties of Deluxe range sourdough pizza, selected for its premium quality and craft ranges, six Chef Select pizza lines chosen for its supreme taste range, and two flavours of its Simply pizza value range – something to cater to every shoppers’ budget.
