Love Food Spend Less
'There is no love sincerer than the love of food'
- George Bernard Shaw
is designed to provide healthy, nutritious, quality produce that brings value to your weekly food shop.
Unfortunately ‘cheap’ food tends to mean less nutritious food, buying own brand chicken soup for 19c may seem fantastic value but when that chicken soup contains only 2% chicken the value disappears.
According to Colin Jephson, director of Ardkeen Quality Food Store, “Shopping on a budget does not have to mean poor food choices. Even in a recession people still want to eat wholesome, nutritious food. At Ardkeen we are committed to ensuring that our customers do not have to sacrifice quality, taste or well-being, whatever their budget”
LOVE FOOD, SPEND LESS - gives you easy to fix, inexpensive meal ideas, money saving offers, and advice on cooking and cutting food costs. You can be thrifty and spend less on groceries, yet still eat tasty, well-balanced nutritious meals.
A great example is their Bacon & Mushroom Tagliatelle recipe using DeCecco Pasta & Crowes Artisan Meats, costing only €1.60 per person to prepare.
Our campaign is based on smart shopping, buying less but of better quality & planning your meals. A quick tour of the aisles will assure you of multiple ways to solve your credit crunch concerns in balancing food quality & grocery spend. Store cupboard essentials at very economical prices, locally sourced lean cuts of meat & in season fruit & vegetables are some of the areas that provide fantastic value for money.
There are also a number of instore demonstrations planned for the coming weeks, which are sure to prove a source of information & inspiration for wholesome family meals on a budget.
