A Cavan producer has been named as one of the six winners of this year's Grow with Aldi programme.
Vanilla Bean Patisserie, in Ballinagh, will see its Lemon Curd, Passion Fruit Curd and Lime Curd launch as a Specialbuy on Thursday, September 23rd.
Vanilla Bean Patisserie rose to the top of 290 products in total which were entered by over 120 Irish food, drink, and non-food suppliers this year.
As the Covid-19 pandemic began to affect the business, Kodric took the leap of faith and entered the Grow with Aldi programme, creating his Lemon Curd, Passion Fruit Curd and Lime Curd products, especially for the competition.
Kristijan says he's loved being able to share his products with the people of Cavan and being able to now share these products with Aldi customers all over Ireland is beyond his wildest dreams.
