Grow with Aldi
Grow with Aldi is a Specialbuy programme for small/medium Irish suppliers. The mentor scheme is undertaken in partnership with Bord Bia. Following the programme’s success in 2018, it has continued in 2019 from the PR launch calling for entries in January, through to the judging phase in February, to the product launch in store from the 6th June with the finale showcasing the six winners at the National Ploughing Championships on Tuesday, 17th September.
Over 169 Irish suppliers entered over 420 products for the Grow with Aldi programme. 35 suppliers (68 products) won a store listing as part of the 6th June Specialbuy promotion.
