With the investment and unwavering support Lidl has offered us, we have been able to grow our capabilities and business significantly, allowing us to hire more employees and offer more selection to customers. It’s always a special moment when we see our handmade eggs on the shelves at our local Lidl store, and we hope shoppers will support us and pick up these special eggs this Easter for their friends and families.’
