This question relates to:
French lesson "Supérieur à, inférieur à, intérieur à, extérieur à (irregular comparatives)"

La glace à vanille est supérieure à la glace au chocolat.
Ce produit est inférieur au nôtre.

The difference is simply that "a + le" gets contracted to "au". As produit is a male noun, it would be "à le nôtre" which becomes "au nôtre".
