We’ve taken the latest step in our long-term commitment to British farming and, from August 2015, raised the minimum price that we will pay to our processors for all liquid milk sold in our UK stores to 28 pence per litre.
This move forms part of our ongoing commitment to champion great British quality and support British farming and follows proactive discussions with the National Farmers Union (NFU). This ensures that farmers receive a guaranteed minimum price for the milk supplied to the three processors that supply Aldi.
It also means we can offer our customers the freshest British produce of the highest quality, every day, at the best price.
Rob Harrison, NFU National Dairy Chairman, said: “We welcome this commitment from Aldi as part of the company’s wider support for British farming.”
Tony Baines, Managing Director of Buying for Aldi, said: “Aldi has wide ranging, long-term commitments to British farming and this price agreement is the latest example of our support for the sector.”
