Aldi commits to the Scottish meat industry
Aldi has continued to encourage locally sourced meat products in its Scottish stores.
Scotbeef will be supplying fresh lamb, which has been sourced from Scottish farmers, and will be sold to Aldi under the retailer’s Nature’s Glen brand.
Speaking of the relationship between the two companies, buying director for Aldi in Scotland Marion MacCormick said: “Scotch Lamb is at its best at this time of year, so to be able to capitalise on its quality and support Scottish suppliers and farms in the process is a major benefit to us as a business.”
This is just one of more than 200 Scottish products stocked by the supermarket. “Aldi’s continued commitment to Scotch Lamb PGI is very welcome and a great indication of their appreciation of the top-quality natural product, which Scottish farmers are committed to producing,” said Suzie Carlaw, marketing controller at Quality Meat Scotland. “Scotch Lamb is also a fantastically versatile product, which is underpinned by one of the world’s longest-established quality assurance schemes.”
Scotbeef has been working alongside Aldi since 2012 and has been providing the company with Scotch Beef and Lamb since.
Nick Watkin, who is the national account manager at Scotbeef, is looking forward to what the future holds. “Our relationship with Aldi has gone from strength to strength over the past few years and we are excited again to be supplying their customers with the best new-season lamb in the country.”
