Aldi’s Specially Selected Tipperary Dry Aged Black Angus Ribeye Steak, was the first Irish product to receive the Crystal status by the prestigious International Taste Institute last year, an honour bestowed on a product for receiving the elusive three-star accreditation for three consecutive years. This product was once again awarded 3 stars this year, bringing it closer to the highly sought after Diamond Award, which is awarded when a product receives 3 stars on its seventh occasion.

This year, Aldi’s Specially Selected Irish Black Angus Rib Eye Steak was also awarded the coveted Crystal status by the international panel of judges, having now won 3 stars, three years in a row.

Eleven different Aldi products were among those recognized for their superior quality and taste at the International Taste Institute Awards, held in Brussels this week. This was the most accolades won by an Irish supermarket at the awards, demonstrating the superior quality of Irish Bord Bia Assured beef available to Aldi shoppers on a weekly basis. Independently judged by some of the best chefs and sommeliers in the world, the awards serve to recognise the highest quality food and drinks products on the market today.

“Our Irish beef range has been receiving awards from the International Taste Institute for many years,” said Aldi group buying director John Curtin. “This is now the second year that we can proudly take home a Crystal certification for another one of our beef products. This is a huge honour for Aldi and ABP and we are very proud to have these products exclusively on the shelves in all of 142 Aldi stores nationwide.”

Each year, The International Taste Institute evaluates thousands of food and drink products from around the world and its jury of prestigious chefs and sommeliers follow strict tasting methodology making a Superior Taste Award the most renowned independent certification available, focused exclusively on taste.
