Great news from our member, DELI LITES who have started 2021 on a high after securing a major deal to supply sandwiches to Boots stores across Northern Ireland.
The new deal builds on the Warrenpoint-based company’s already strong relationship with the leading pharmacy-led health and beauty retailer, with whom it has worked in the Republic of Ireland for four years.
DELI LITES is run by the husband and wife entrepreneurs, Brian Reid & Jackie Reid and employs a team of almost 300 people, supplying a range of products to a host of other major retailers such as Sainsbury’s, Tesco & Costa.
DELI LITES will be the first local food company to supply fresh food-to-go solutions to Boots stores in NI, which had previously relied on GB-based suppliers.
Brian Reid, CEO of DELI LITES said:
“We have had a fantastic working relationship with Boots for four years and we are excited to now be supplying the Northern Ireland stores.”
“It is an exciting opportunity for us to profile our ranges and work together on new products over coming years.”
“Given the supply chain benefits and the ‘source local’ advantage, it is of mutual benefit to both companies to be working together at this time.”
