As the Royal Highland Show celebrates its 178th year, Aldi are delighted to be returning to the event to showcase their long standing commitment to supporting Scottish suppliers and the fantastic range of products they provide for Aldi stores. Aldi would like to take this opportunity to invite those suppliers who do not currently partner with them, to arrange a one-to-one meeting with a member of our Buying team at our exhibition marquee between June 21st and 24th.

It is their ongoing pledge that Aldi in Scotland stands for quality, provenance and sourcing integrity. Aldi Scotland currently stock a range of over 400 Scottish products and are committed to increasing this total over the coming years. To this end, they are continuing to invest in Scotland in 2018. Following the official opening of their multi-million pound Scottish Buying Office, work is now beginning on new chill and freezer facilities at their Scottish headquarters, providing the infrastructure required to supply more Scottish products to Aldi stores. Aldi will open seven new stores in Scotland during the course of the year, creating upwards of 180 new jobs in towns from Fort William to Peterhead.  

Creating long term partnerships with their suppliers is at the heart of the Aldi business. For four years running, their suppliers have rated Aldi as the best performing retailer for compliance with the Grocery Code Adjudicator survey, the ‘Groceries Supply Code of Practice’, which provides details on how retailers should manage their relationships with suppliers. In addition, Aldi were the UK’s first retailer to sign the NFU’s ‘Fruit and Veg Pledge’ which aims to create a fair and transparent produce supply chain.
