Graham Nicolson, group buying director at Aldi Scotland, said: “Scottish Food & Drink Fortnight is one of the biggest dates in our calendar, allowing us to put the spotlight fully on a fantastic collection of Scottish producers.
“Our industry, like many others, has faced a challenging year, with many local suppliers having to adapt in innovative ways to survive. Despite the turbulence, we have continued to see a great show of strength from producers, whose passion and creativity are the cornerstones of Scotland’s world-renowned reputation in food and drink.
“This year, we have been working closer than ever with the team at Scotland Food & Drink to understand the most effective steps we can take to support the sector, and we are excited to bring our largest ever Specialbuy range of Scottish-sourced products to our customers, which will truly highlight the diversity and talent of our local suppliers.
