Scottish suppliers score Aldi deal worth almost £500,000

Two Scottish suppliers have scored deals with super market giant Aldi worth nearly £500,000.

Forfar-based Strathmore Foods have signed a £240,000 contract to supply their spicy macaroni cheese and macaroni cheese with bacon to Scottish stores, while Biggar-based Borders Gourmet Ltd will supply their specially selected macaroni cheese in ham hough and four cheese flavours thanks to a £230,000 deal.

Both brand’s products are on shelves now across Aldi’s 65 Scottish stores.

Julie Nisbet, Managing Director of Strathmore Foods, said: “This new deal with Aldi is a great extension of what we have been doing with them since we first started working together in 2008.

“We hope that our flavoured Macaroni Cheese, which has been made using locally sourced products, will really appeal to Aldi’s customers.” 

Alison Tweedie from Borders Gourmet Ltd, added: “We have been proudly working with Aldi since 2013 and this new deal is a reflection of how this relationship has gone from strength to strength.

“We are looking forward to supplying Aldi’s customers and I’m sure our Ham Hough macaroni cheese, made using 100% British pork, will go down a treat.”

Richard Holloway, managing director of Aldi in Scotland, said: “Strathmore Foods and Borders Gourmet are great examples of Scottish businesses producing high quality products that really appeal to our customers.

“Working with the best suppliers in the country is a priority for us and we are continually looking for the best quality Scottish produce at everyday low prices.”
