This is the ninth year of the Blas na hEireann awards which are recognised as the biggest annual competition for quality Irish produce across the island of Ireland. 

Over 2,500 products were entered into the competition this year – with those nominated hoping to go home with Gold, Silver or Bronze Awards across 100 food and drink categories – not to mention other prestigious awards such as the Supreme Champion 2016 and Best Artisan Producer 2016  Products are not just sourced - but produced - locally and, in many cases, exclusively for SuperValu supporting Kildare agri-food industry, from grass roots level up.
