A major supermarket chain is on the lookout for Dorchester businesses to partner with.

Aldi is calling for suppliers of all products including food, drink and ‘specialbuys’ (the goods you may find in the middle aisle), in the town to get involved as part of its drive to support British businesses.

Julie Ashfield, Managing Director of Buying at Aldi UK, said: “Working with UK partners is at the heart of our business and three quarters of our sales are from British suppliers. We are incredibly proud of these partnerships, and it is amazing to watch so many of our suppliers grow with us. 

“Securing new partners and spending more with British suppliers is leading to the creation of much-needed jobs whilst also boosting British farming and manufacturing. We look forward to bringing even more suppliers on board throughout 2023.”

Aldi already partners with around 5,000 British suppliers, current long-standing suppliers of Aldi based in the South West include Brue Valley and Crediton Dairy.

The call out is part of the supermarket’s ongoing commitment to spend an additional £3.5 billion a year with UK suppliers by 2025.
