A Castletownbere based seafood company is celebrating after landing a EUR 500,000 deal with Lidl to supply brown crabs to 800 of its stores in Spain and Portugal.

    

Shellfish Ireland is a supplier of sustainable shellfish including crab, shrimp, lobster, and prawns, to the local and international markets.

Shellfish Ireland, which employs around 150 people in Castletownbere, landed the deal due to their relationship with Lidl Ireland, and will now see its produce shipped from West Cork to depots all over Spain and Portugal.

The deal is the result of efforts to open up new avenues for Irish suppliers in the seafood area in Lidl's international markets.

This has resulted in one of Lidl Spain's buyers, Fernando Clemente Delgado, moving to be based full time in Lidl s Dublin HQ to negotiate international contracts directly with Irish suppliers.

Ryan Murphy of Shellfish Ireland said the deal was "a great opportunity" for the company and said engagement with Mr Clemente was a key part in securing the opportunity.

"The opportunity to export wild north east Atlantic crab, or brown crab, to Lidl stores in Spain and Portugal is hugely exciting for us and will allow us to continue to support the local community, where we are one of the largest employers in the area,” he said.
