ALDI has announced that it has spent €1.1 billion with Irish suppliers in 2023, a year which saw the opening of six new stores and ALDI being voted the most reputable supermarket in Ireland by Irish shoppers. The supermarket group has confirmed it plans to continue this annual €1.1 billion investment again throughout 2024, as it continues to support its Irish supplier network.

Working with over 330 Irish food and drink producers nationwide, ALDI offers a diverse range of over 1,800 products across Ireland. Since 2018, the company has also dedicated over €10 million to its Grow with ALDI supplier development programme, providing new and upcoming Irish food and drink companies with an opportunity to secure a listing in ALDI’s 161 stores.

In 2023, ALDI continued its expansion efforts, adding six new stores to its network – in Adamstown, Athenry, Ballyhaunis, Cabra, Carrigaline and Kanturk – bringing the total store count to 161 nationwide. Redoubling its commitment to local communities, ALDI introduced two new investment programmes for the Midlands and Limerick, with a combined value exceeding €69 million.

Reaffirming its dedication to its Irish supply base, ALDI finalised significant new contract deals across various products in 2023. This included notable new agreements involving Lakeland Dairies, Glenpatrick Spring Water, Clandeboye Estate Yoghurt, Donnelly Fresh Produce, and Velo Coffee Roasters, worth a total of more than €40 million. ALDI’s consistent spend with Irish suppliers remains a key pillar of its support for the local economy, creating and sustaining jobs across the country.

Looking ahead to 2024, Colin Breslin, Managing Director of Buying & Services at ALDI Ireland, said: “We are committed to supporting our network of more than 330 valued Irish suppliers, with whom we are proud to have spent another €1.1 billion last year. At ALDI, we have a very strong track record over the last 25 years of supporting Irish producers.

“Our lasting supplier relationships are central to our success, and we are proud to work with so many Irish producers, opening opportunities for local companies to stock their produce on ALDI shelves. We look forward to continuing to support our supply base throughout 2024, while expanding our store network and bringing our unbeatable value to even more local Irish communities.”
