Aldi aims to recruit over 100 new British suppliers in 2022
Aldi is aiming to recruit over 100 additional British suppliers next year as it looks to further increase the number of products it sources from within the UK across all product categories.
The move will accelerate the supermarket’s commitment to grow its spend with UK suppliers by £3.5 billion a year by the end of 2025.
Aldi’s core range of fresh meat, eggs, milk, butter and cream is already sourced from within the UK, while more than 40% of its fresh produce is British.
The supermarket has revealed that it spent a total of £9 billion with UK companies last year and said opportunities for suppliers to provide seasonal products, permanent listings and ‘Specialbuy’ items are growing due to it opening an average of one new UK store a week.
Giles Hurley, chief executive at Aldi UK, said: “We are incredibly proud of our support for British suppliers, and excited for our supply chain partners to grow with us. 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.”
