Aldi Ireland today announced a new agreement with Town of Monaghan Co-op Ltd that will see it become Aldi’s third fresh milk supplier.
The appointment was made following a recent tender process, and will take effect from June 26. Town of Monaghan Co-op Ltd will initially supply nine Aldi stores in the North East of the country with 2 and 3 litre measures of milk to be sold under the Clonbawn brand. Among these stores is the new Carrickmacross outlet which will also open on June 26.
The co-op has already partnered with Aldi for over four years, supplying a number of yogurts in Aldi’s award-winning Irish yogurt range.
Welcoming the new agreement, Aldi’s Group Buying Director Colin Breslin said, “Our commitment to our customers is that 100% of our Clonbawn fresh milk range sold at our Irish stores is sourced from farms in the Republic of Ireland. We are delighted to announce that Town of Monaghan Co-op Ltd. will now be supplying Irish milk to our stores. The milk will be 100% sourced from Republic of Ireland farms, packaged in Monaghan and carry the National Dairy Council (NDC) logo.
“Our business is developing at an exceptional rate in Ireland, and as it continues to grow, there will be more and more opportunities for Irish companies like Town of Monaghan Co-op Ltd to work with us.”
Aldi has tripled its annual spend on Irish products over the past five years, an as a result, all of the milk sold in its 108 Irish stores is now sourced from Irish farms.
