TWO Garden County producers have won a place on shelves of all 148 stores nationwide with the Grow with Aldi Festive programme,

For the second year running, the Grow with Aldi programme has gone festive as Aldi gives local suppliers and producers from all over Ireland the opportunity to sell their products in Aldi stores at Christmas time, through the Grow with Aldi Festive programme.

Having announced the six winners of Grow with Aldi 2021 back in September, Aldi decided to once again add to the Christmas cheer by giving 21 lucky Irish producers the opportunity to sell their wares in Aldi stores nationwide.

Among the lucky producers are Le Paysan Artisan Food, established in 1996 by Thierry Peurois and based out of Wicklow enterprise Park, The Murrough, Wicklow town. Their scrumptious hand-made chicken liver pâté made using local Irish free range chicken, Irish cream and Irish butter, will be available at all Aldi stores, at 3.99.

Wicklow Hills Whiskey will also be available at all the stores, priced €34.99 for a 70cl bottle. The whiskey’s unique taste comes from the water from producer Ian Jones’ family well in Redcross.

Commenting on this recent announcement, the Wicklow Hills Whiskey team said; “To have been chosen by the Aldi team as one of this year’s Grow with Aldi Festive programme is something that we never could have imagined this time last year! We are so excited to be able to reach more shoppers than ever and add to the festive cheer.”

John Curtin, Group Buying Director at Aldi Ireland said; “From award-winning coffee to Irish-made whiskey, and everything in between, we couldn’t be happier with the quality products that our customers can look forward to trying out this Christmas through Grow with Aldi Festive.

“Support for Irish suppliers is important all year round but especially over the festive season, and we’re thrilled to be able to bring many quality, Irish products to Aldi shelves nationwide, so that our customers can choose amazing, locally made produce, at a great price.

“We would like to congratulate the suppliers of our second Grow with Aldi Festive, their products deserve to be on shelves nationwide and we can’t wait to see how much Aldi customers enjoy them over the festive period.”
