This announcement coincides with Aldi’s 25th anniversary in Ireland, as it releases its latest economic impact report.

Last year, Aldi spent €1.1 billion with Irish suppliers, contributing €757 million to the state’s economy.

The report highlights a 58% increase in Aldi’s purchases from Irish suppliers since 2019, with Irish products now making up nearly half of all sales.
