Aldi is encouraging Irish suppliers who have products with a 'festive feel' to make contact via its Grow with Aldi programme.
'The products that are chosen will be on the shelves of all 143 Aldi stores nationwide for Christmas 2020,' the discounter said.
These products will join the 75 Irish supplier products that have already made it onto the Aldi shelves in 2020 through the programme.
“Grow with Aldi is in its third year and we are delighted this year to be in a position to support even more small and medium sized Irish suppliers, especially during this challenging time where COVID-19 has tested the resilience of many suppliers," said John Curtin, group buying director, Aldi.
"We know that there are great Irish products perfect for the festive period and we are once again offering suppliers the opportunity to be on the shelves of all Aldi stores nationwide for the Christmas season,” he added.
