Grow with Aldi

Aldi announced it was investing €500,000 in a new supplier development programme to give up-and-coming Irish food and drink companies the chance to get on its shelves with a long-term contract.  The programme was announced as new research from Ignite Research found that buying Irish is more important than ever for Irish consumers, with 78% of Irish shoppers always choosing an Irish made product over a similar imported option.

‘Grow with Aldi’ sought applications from small to medium Irish suppliers nationwide to enter their products to win a place on the mentoring programme and supply all 130 Aldi stores during a special Irish Food Market promotion in August 2018.  Aldi selected up to 50 of Ireland’s best new artisan products to take part in the promotion, with each supplier providing a guaranteed volume of their product.  Up to five of the products will be given the opportunity to become core line Aldi listed products, winning a contract to be sold in Aldi’s Irish stores year-round.

Developed in partnership with Bord Bia, ‘Grow with Aldi’ was designed to help small to medium Irish food and drink businesses secure a retail listing. Participants will receive tailored mentoring and bespoke workshops with Aldi buyers and Bord Bia technical experts, teaching them the skills to help grow and develop their product and business.

Applications are now closed.
