Aldi to add 100 UK suppliers in 2022

Aldi has announced that it is aiming to recruit more than 100 additional British suppliers this year.

The move is part of the supermarket chain’s commitment to increase its spend with UK suppliers by £3.5 billion a year by the end of 2025.

Aldi’s entire core range of fresh meat, eggs, milk, butter and cream is already sourced from British suppliers, while more than 40 per cent of fresh produce sold is also British.

The supermarket spent a total of £9 billion with UK companies last year.

“We are incredibly proud of our support for British suppliers, and excited for our supply chain partners to grow with us,” said Giles Hurley, chief executive, Aldi UK. “That’s why we’re now on the lookout for even more British suppliers to add to our current partnerships, helping to create even more jobs as well as new opportunities for these businesses.”
