Kickstart Supplier Development Programme
2024 Applications Now Open
Do you have the secret ingredient?
Are you hungry for the opportunity to have your product on the shelves of more than 200 stores across the island?
We’re searching for our next generation of producers with a passion for developing locally sourced quality products to join our Kickstart Supplier Development Programme
Running since 2017, the Lidl Kickstart Programme has supported over 150 local suppliers, has put over 600 products on shelves during limited offer promotions, and now has 12 products permanently listed from 6 Kickstart Programme alumni. This equals an investment of over 8.5million Euro in helping provide the perfect platform for Irish food producers to showcase their quality products across our network of stores on the island of Ireland.
Applicants are invited to apply until February 29th 2024. Successful applicants will participate on a development programme that is tailormade to inform and mentor suppliers on every step of working with a large retailer, and producers will then supply for a promotion in September.
Who can Apply
We are accepting applications from producers of food, near food and non-food, who are based on the island of Ireland.
Applications are open until 29th February 2024
