Ballyconnell pizza company has won a €27 million contract with Lidl

A Ballyconnell pizza company has won a €27 million contract with Lidl.

The contract will see Crust & Crumb supply products to around 1,000 Lidl stores in Ireland and the UK.

Crust & Crumb is Ireland’s largest manufacturer of gluten free dough-based products.

Originally set up in Fermanagh, it recently expanded south of the border to mitigate against the impact of Brexit.

It hired 80 new staff in Ballyconnell in early 2018 and has seen major investment in the area since.

The deal will see Crust & Crumb provide Lidl with 20 varieties of its pizza products.
