Deluxe is just one of many pseudo-brands that Lidl stock, all of which are in fact Lidl products.
Checking to see if Lidl offered saffron rice as a stand-alone side dish, I came across the "LIdl Food Academy" site, where I found :
Quote
Aromatic rice with saffron and pine nuts -- Ingredients for 4-6 portions
    2 tbsp butter, Milbona
    2 cup basmati or jasmine rice, Golden Sun
    2 tbsp pine nuts, Alesto
    4 cups hot vegetable stock, Cusina, or hot water
    1 sachet (0.1 gr) powdered Kozani saffron,
    Deluxe
    Freshly-ground pepper, Kania
    Salt (optional), KYPARI
All of Milbona, Golden Sun, Alesto, Cusina, Kozani, Kania and Kypari are Lidl "pseudo-brands", used to create a sense of ethnic authenticity for what are in practice own-brand ingredients.  What "Deluxe" is doing there I have no idea, since it does not qualify any particular ingredient.

I imagine it's a formatting error since the saffron logically is what makes it deluxe due to its cost and the "Deluxe" is in the general vicinity of the saffron.
Fighting for truth, justice and the BIR way!

Yes, I think you're right, Santa; there is a trailing comma after "saffron" that could well indicate that the "Deluxe" was intended to be run on.  I now realise that I was wrong in including "Kozani" as one of Lidl's faux-brands; it is, of course. a type of saffron, and the pseudo-brand "Deluxe".
