Mrs Tilly's scores six-figure Lidl deal

Family-run confectionery firm Mrs Tilly’s has secured a six-figure deal with Lidl to produce three products for the supermarket’s Caulder’s Confectionery range.

The deal for the new tablet, fudge and macaroon bars marks the firm time Mrs Tilly’s, which is owned and ran by two generations of the Paterson family, has worked on an own label project.

Over the next six months, Lidl is working to boost its Scottish offering across all of its Scottish stores, with the recently developed buying department working towards having over 25% of all in store products locally sourced.

Paul McQuade, Senior Buyer for Lidl in Scotland said: “We are delighted to offer our customers these traditionally hand-crafted Scottish favourites using locally sourced milk and butter. Working with suppliers who share the same passion about delivering quality products to our customers is a priority.

“We are focused on looking for the best Scottish produce to stock in our stores at everyday low prices.”

Ronnie Wilson, Commercial Manager for Tilly’s, added: "We are very pleased to have had the opportunity to collaborate with Lidl in Scotland and help them develop a range of Caulder's Confectionery bars. 

“Recent investments in our own production capabilities have seen us look to expand our customer portfolio and partner with businesses who can deliver additional volume and while this new range has only launched in the last few months, the early signs are very encouraging and we are confident that the initial predictions on annual sales forecasts will be exceeded."
