Aldi has recently announced today the list of Irish products that will make it onto shelves this Christmas as part of its Grow with Aldi.
Grow with Aldi Festive was launched back in August, and Aldi put the call out to small and medium suppliers across Ireland, to get in touch with them if they’d like to see their products on the shelves over the Christmas period.
Commenting, John Curtin, group buying director at Aldi Ireland said: “From coffee to kombucha, and chilli sauce to candy floss, a wide range of excellent Irish producers have benefited from the Grow with Aldi supplier programme over the past three years."
