Lidl strikes seven figure ice cream deal just in time for summer

Lidl has today revealed a new deal with Graham’s The Family Dairy that will see ice cream added to the list of products sold under its Aberdoyle Dairies brand throughout Scotland stores.

Graham’s currently supplies milk, butter, cheese, and cottage cheese to Lidl, with other dairy products in the pipeline, and is developing its new facility in Glenfield, Fife, to help meet the demand.

The new multi-million pound deal will build on the 30 products already sold under the Aberdoyle Dairies brand over the next 12 months, with more to follow later in the year. 

Paul McQuade, senior buyer for Lidl in Scotland, said:  "Our strategy has always been about looking for the best quality Scottish produce to stock in our stores at everyday low prices.

“Lidl have worked closely with Graham's for over a decade to ensure our customers receive a wide variety of quality Scottish dairy products. 

“We have now developed an own-label ice cream range produced using Scottish milk and double cream which we expect to go down very well with Lidl shoppers.”

Robert Graham, managing director at Graham’s The Family Dairy, said: “We are delighted to be supplying Lidl with our award winning ice-cream which is made using the highest quality milk produced by our own local farmers.

“We have a strong relationship with Lidl which has been built over many years of working together, because Lidl, like our family business, share a commitment to quality products with a genuine local provenance. 

“This deal is not only positive for our business, but it also supports Scotland’s farming community.”

The Aberdoyle Dairies ice cream is available in stores now in Traditional Dairy, Honeycomb and Raspberry ripple flavours.
