East Lancashire food producers are being urged to get in touch with Aldi if they are interested in having their products stocked in supermarkets.

Aldi is on the search for new British suppliers to partner with in 2024.

The appeal covers products in all categories; food, drink and special buys, and forms part of Aldi's aim to increase investment in local businesses.

The supermarket spent an additional £1.3 billion with British suppliers in 2023, and works with around 5,000 suppliers across the UK.

It has been ranked as the best supermarket for conducting relationships fairly and in good faith for a record 10 years in the GSCOP annual survey.

Julie Ashfield, managing director of buying at Aldi UK, said: “British suppliers are the lifeblood of our business and without them Aldi wouldn’t be where it is today.

"We will always be at their side.

“Longstanding relationships with suppliers are at the heart of our success and we are proud to work with so many British suppliers, helping to bolster job opportunities and investment in the UK supply chain.”

Any businesses which are interested in partnering with Aldi are urged to get in touch through the suppliers section of the supermarket's website.
