Aldi lists quality Scotch haggis

Aldi in Scotland has started stocking a specially developed Scotch haggis, the only one on the market that contains Scotch Beef PGI and Scotch Lamb PGI.

The haggis, made by Campbells Prime Meat, became available on 16 April and is exclusively available at Aldi stores in Scotland.

Campbells, based in Linlithgow, created its first traditional haggis recipe more than 100 years ago, in 1911. The new haggis sold in Aldi was developed with Quality Meat Scotland (QMS) to meet what has been described by Richard Lochhead MSP as “a real gap in the market for a premium Scotch haggis of unrivalled provenance”.

Christopher Campbell, Campbells Prime Meat managing director, said: “We are delighted to have worked with QMS on updating our haggis recipe and bringing this product to life. We envisage this product will give further confidence to our customers with regards to the strong emphasis we place on transparent supply chain and provenance.”

QMS added that Scotch Beef and Scotch Lamb are underpinned by one of the longest-running quality assurance schemes in the world.

Richard Holloway, managing director of Aldi in Scotland, said: “Aldi is focused on bringing the best-quality locally sourced products to our shoppers in Scotland. April sees our 25th anniversary as a business in the UK and selling a Scotch haggis seems the perfect way to mark this milestone for our stores in Scotland.”
