Aldi is on the lookout for new UK suppliers to partner with in 2023 as part of its drive to support British businesses.
The call out applies to all product categories, including food, drink and Specialbuys, and forms part of the supermarket’s ongoing commitment to spend an additional £3.5 billion a year with UK suppliers by 2025. Suppliers based in Shropshire interested in working with Britain’s fourth-largest supermarket can visit aldi.co.uk/suppliers/becoming-a-supplier to find out more.
Aldi already partners with around 5,000 British suppliers, current long-standing suppliers of Aldi based in the West Midlands include Halfpenny Green, R&RW Bartlett and Evesham Vale Growers.
Julie Ashfield, Managing Director of Buying at Aldi UK, said: “Working with UK partners is at the heart of our business and three quarters of our sales are from British suppliers. We are incredibly proud of these partnerships, and it is amazing to watch so many of our suppliers grow with us.
“Securing new partners and spending more with British suppliers is leading to the creation of much-needed jobs whilst also boosting British farming and manufacturing. We look forward to bringing even more suppliers on board throughout 2023.”
Last year, Aldi partnered with Channel 4 in search of ‘Aldi’s Next Big Thing’, launching a brand-new TV series that saw the supermarket uncover and stock new products from the UK’s best small food and drink businesses.
Following the success of series one, Aldi’s Next Big Thing will be returning to TV screens for a second series in 2024.
