Aldi Ireland has released a list of its top-twenty selling grocery products over the last three-week period since the beginning of the COVID-19 outbreak.

The top-seller during the period 16 March – 05 April was 2 litres of Fresh Irish Milk, with Pure Irish Creamery Butter and a 1kg bag of Irish Carrots taking second and third place, the discounter said.
