Aldi recently announced the return of its ‘Grow with Aldi’ supplier development programme for 2021, which will see it invest more than €500,000 in supporting Irish suppliers, offering them the chance to become a core range listing in all 145 Aldi Ireland stores. To date, over 500 Irish suppliers have entered the Grow with Aldi programme over the last 3 years.

 

This year, the Grow with Aldi message is sustainability, entrants are encouraged to demonstrate how their product/company is focusing on sustainability as a top priority. This year will also see non-food related Irish products have the chance to appear on Aldi’s shelves. From beauty products to cleaning products to candles and more, the programme is wide open this year!

  

Aldi will pick up to 60 products entered as part of the ‘Grow with Aldi’ Specialbuys event on the 6th of June 2021. A final six of the products will then be chosen to become a core range listing in all of Aldi’s 145 stores nationwide.

 

Developed in partnership with Bord Bia, the programme is designed to help small and medium producers gain experience and exposure for their products. Participants will receive tailored mentoring and bespoke workshops with the Aldi Buying team, the Aldi Marketing team and Bord Bia technical experts.
