Best practices to import products into Odoo 8?

We receive weekly updated stock list from our suppliers (about 50,000 products) which we need to ideally import first, then update on a weekly basis.

Is there any off-the-shelve add-on that would allow us to do that?

Otherwise, what is the best way to import products into odoo 8 hosted on our own dedicated server running ubuntu 12.04?

The best way to import the product in OpenERP 8 is to do batches of 15000 as a batch with the given format on CSV and then in the format use decoding as latin1 or latin 2 and import. would take some time to import and will import all in a flash
