Avondale in new range of soups for Asda

By Staff Reporter

A Co Armagh food company has launched a new range of soups-for-one which will be stocked in Asda's 17 stores across Northern Ireland.

Avondale Foods in Lurgan is making the Just For You soups in tomato and basil, cream of vegetable and red Thai chicken flavours.

The company already supplies coleslaw, potato salad and 500g soups to Asda.

Colin Ferguson, head of sales in Ireland for Avondale Foods, said: "We will have been trading under the Country Kitchen brand for 25 years in 2017 and we're renowned for our soup products - especially our traditional vegetable broth.

"The 'Just For You' soup launch is part of a revamp of our current product range, to ensure we continue to meet consumer needs."

Brian Conway, buying manager Northern Ireland for Asda, said: "Avondale Foods has worked with Asda since we came to Northern Ireland 11 years ago - and since then the company has become one of our most trusted suppliers. The launch of the new range is testament to the team's continued focus on new product development and I have no doubt the soups will appeal to our broad customer base."

The range is available in all Asda NI stores now.
