Local suppliers sought by Aldi

Aldi is on the hunt for new British suppliers to partner with in 2024.

The call out applies to all product categories, including food, drink, and Specialbuys, and forms part of the supermarket’s ongoing commitment to increase investment in local businesses.

The supermarket spent an additional £1.3 billion with British suppliers in 2023.

Aldi works with around 5,000 suppliers across the UK and has been ranked as the best supermarket for conducting relationships fairly and in good faith for a record 10 years in the GSCOP annual survey.

Julie Ashfield, Managing Director of Buying at Aldi UK, said, “British suppliers are the lifeblood of our business and without them Aldi wouldn’t be where it is today. We will always be at their side.

“Longstanding relationships with suppliers are at the heart of our success and we are proud to work with so many British suppliers, helping to bolster job opportunities and investment in the UK supply chain.”

Aldi recently recorded its best ever Christmas with sales topping £1.5 billion. Consumer champion Which? also confirmed that Aldi was the UK’s lowest-priced supermarket for 2023, for a third year.

Which? also found Aldi to be the cheapest for a typical Christmas shop, with the traditional Big Four supermarkets of Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Morrisons and Asda being more than 23% more expensive, on average.

It recently committed to opening up to 500 more stores across Britain, planning to invest more than £1.4 billion over the next two years. This includes work to expand its distribution and store network as well as improving existing stores and technology infrastructure to support growth.
