Two Kerry suppliers have been chosen to be part of Lidl Ireland’s Kickstart programme.

It’s the fourth year of the supplier development programme, which is backed by Bord Bia.

It aims to support small and medium Irish food and drink businesses grow their brand and build their supply network.

This year’s Kickstart features gluten free brown soda bread by artisan baking company, Wellness Baking Listowel.
