Aldi UK 100% Fresh British Beef from Aldi

British quality

Aldi is a market leader in the amount of fresh produce they sell which is British, with a lot of their products sourced from the UK. In fact, their entire core range of fresh meat and milk from British, Red Tractor approved farms. Needless to say, Aldi is committed to supporting British farmers, growers and suppliers. Suppliers even voted Aldi the most compliant Supermarket with the Groceries Supply Code of Practice (GSCOP) for the fifth year running in the Grocery Code Adjudicators (GCA) 2018 Annual Survey.

Farming Charter

Aldi’s commitment to British farmers is why they’ve signed up to the Back British Farming Charter. Their aim was to meet their customers’ demand for British produce, and by supporting British farming ensuring that the UK can become a more food secure nation, relying less on imported goods.

Four Cross Farm

Aldi is committed to supporting British farmers, growers and suppliers. One such farmer is Matthew Wright of Four Crosses, a farm in Shrewsbury that is one of their suppliers of 100% British Farm Assured beef. This multi-generation family farm has won multiple national farming awards and has been providing high-quality beef to Aldi for over 7 years.

“This story shows how Aldi supports Goal 2: Zero Hunger, specifically Target 2.1: “By 2030, double the agricultural productivity and the incomes of small-scale food producers, particularly women, indigenous peoples, family farmers, pastoralists and fishers, including through secure and equal access to land, other productive resources and inputs, knowledge, financial services, markets and opportunities for value addition and non-farm employment.”
