The new lines include Salt ‘N’ Chilli Wraps, Chicken, Stuffing & Coleslaw Sandwiches, and Free-Range Egg & Sweet Cure Bacon Sandwiches, as well as Salted Caramel Brownies, and Honeycomb Haste Treat Bars.

Established over 25 years ago, independently-owned Deli Lites is an award-winning, food-to-go manufacturer that exports its innovative products globally, and currently employs over 200 people at their Warrenpoint HQ.

Barbara Hawkins, Key Account Manager at Deli Lites, said: “We are delighted to be able to extend the reach of our food to-go-products throughout Northern Ireland as a result of these new listings with Asda. There really is something for everyone across the range, including vegan and non-vegan options. Whilst our company continues to innovate and evolve, one thing we will never do is mediocrity. Not only will Asda shoppers have a variety of new and nostalgic flavours to choose from, but they can rest assured that when they pick one of our premium artisan lunches, they are picking a product that supports other local suppliers created with a social conscience.”
