Oakpark make history at the prestigious Grocer Own Label Awards

Oakpark has made history by winning back to back Gold Medals at the prestigious annual Grocer Own Label Food and Drink awards in London.

We have been were crowned “category champion” of bacon for our delicious Irish Thick Cut Honey Rasher, produced under the Brannans range for Aldi UK and Ireland.

This award is particularly special as it marks back to back Gold Medal wins in the category and an incredible three Gold Medals in five years.

Yet again this year we beat off stiff competition from all the UK large retailers including Marks & Spencer, Morrisons, Sainsbury’s, ASDA, and Tesco.

The event awards the most outstanding products in the own label category which are on sale in UK supermarkets. The Gold Medal is a glowing endorsement of the product quality and unique flavoured bacon we offer to our customers in Ireland and the UK. It highlights yet again the high standards we operate to from our factory in Cahir, Co. Tipperary.

General Manger David Brett had the following to say about the award – “We are very proud to yet again receive this prestigious Gold Medal and produce what the judges have now proclaimed to be the best rasher on the UK market for two consecutive years. We have been able to differentiate from our competitors in recent years using innovative packaging, clever new product development and bespoke unique cures for our retail customers. This has added real value to our customers in a time when  their shoppers are demanding more quality, innovation and value in each category”.
