Lidl to invest £15 billion in UK food, farming and production

Lidl has announced plans to invest a record £15 billion in UK suppliers over the next five years.

Following a commitment to source 100% of its listed fresh poultry from UK farms, the supermarket is also planning to increase sales of British sourced fresh meat, poultry and fresh produce by over 10% over the next 12 months.

Ryan McDonnell, chief commercial officer at Lidl GB, said: “As our business continues to grow, it’s vital that our suppliers remain at the heart of our growth plans.”

Lidl will also introduce longer-term contracts for suppliers and and introduce a young farmers programme  to support new talent in the farming industry.
