Last year (2021) Aldi sourced over €9.5 million of locally produced food and drink from Wexford based suppliers. Aldi partners with nine Wexford producers including long-term relationships with Sean Stafford Bakeries and O’Connor Nurseries. Last year Aldi began working with two Wexford suppliers for the first time, Wild about Food and The Ring of Hook Smokehouse.
Niall O’Connor, Group Managing Director, Aldi Ireland said: “Our goal is to make a positive impact in every local community that our stores serve. Our operations and stores contribute to businesses, communities and families right across Wexford.
“We have invested €23.5 million in our Wexford stores over the last number of years, while we sourced more than €9.5 million of locally produced food and drink from Wexford based suppliers last year. Multiple local charities have also availed of our support through our FoodCloud partnership and Community Grants initiative.”
Operating seven stores in Wexford, Aldi employs 185 full time staff, spending €5 million on wages annually.
