Aldi Ireland recently attended the latest meeting of the Beef Taskforce alongside other industry stakeholders.
Following the meeting, John Curtin, Aldi’s group buying director said: “Aldi is pleased to participate in today’s forum and is fully committed to making a constructive contribution towards the work of the Beef Taskforce and the future of the Irish beef market.”
“The retail sector only accounts for 6% of the beef produced in Ireland and does not determine the market price of Irish beef. Aldi is committed to ensuring we will always offer our customers the very best in Irish beef."
"All of our multi-award winning fresh meat, including our beef is 100% Irish, sourced exclusively from Republic of Ireland farms, and Bord Bia Quality Assured.” He added.
“We have commissioned a leading third level institution to carry out an analysis of the quality and nutritional attributes of our beef range. We expect this research to be complete within the next two months.”
